Each year, The Salvation Army helps parents and guardians in our communities provide Christmas to children who may not have received gifts otherwise. This is done through our Christmas Toy Town- where we give the parents and guardians the opportunity to "shop" for their youth at our Christmas Shop. The gifts they choose from are new donated gifts or they are purchased with funds from generous donors.
In the week our Christmas Shop is open, we help over 1,000 families supply Christmas gifts for their children. We are in need of volunteers to help us with sorting toys, stocking the Christmas Shop, hospitality hosts for the clients and for other volunteers, personal shoppers to assist the parents in the "shopping" process, and volunteers to help parents and guardians load gifts into their car.

This event requires volunteers to be outside during winter conditions and some activities may require some heavy lifting. Working the tree lot is an opportunity for teams, churches, schools, civic organizations, and families to come together in the spirit of the holidays.
Would you be interested in volunteering as an usher for a new play by Metro Theater Company at the Grandel Theater? Support quality family-friendly theater that Metro brings to St. Louis with their mission of helping to help build inclusive communities and social justice. Not only can you support them in their worthy mission, but you also get to stay and see the play for free! The beautiful historic Grandel Theater is at 3610 Grandel Sq. in the Grand Center Arts District across from Powell Symphony Hall.
The performance coming up is Wonderland: Alice's Rock & Roll Adventure, adapted from Lewis Carrol's story. How can you march to the beat of your own drummer when you’re still writing the song? Part theater, part rock concert, all of your favorite characters are here in this new take on Lewis Carroll’s beloved, poetic tale of self-actualization. A cast of actors/musicians plays an eclectic mix of everything from classic rock to ska to punk as 7-1/2-year-old Alice chases through Wonderland in search of her own inner musical voice. Poetry has never been so fun!
Metro Theater Company’s plays are for people of all ages and capacities. They offer weekend public performances but also work with schools to bring students in by bus during selected weekdays to foster learning through this exciting arts approach. Before and after the student shows, Metro Theater Company offers Educator Guides for teachers, and after the performances, the teaching artists visit the schools for further dialogue with students on the important conversations that emerge from the plays.
A number of ushers are needed for each performance. After ushering, you may take a seat and see the performance for free. Your duties would include arriving one hour before the performance begins, and:
As an usher for a student weekday performance, you would assist by guiding students safely into the theater from their school buses, through the lobby, and into their seats.
As an usher for a public performance on a weekend evening or a matinee, you would assist with ticket scanning, playbill distribution, and directing people to their specific seats.
Opening night is this Saturday (Dec. 2nd). and we'll have performances until Dec 30th!
