Give Thanks Wrap-a-Thon
Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

You can almost smell the turkey roasting, but please take a little time to give thanks!

Open Door Foundation will kick off their Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the young patients of Open Door Family Medical Centers with a Give Thanks Wrap-a-Thon the Saturday before Thanksgiving on November 22nd beginning at 9:00am.

We would like up to 14 people per shift. Adult, college student and high school student volunteers are needed. Middle school children may help when accompanied by an adult. Our gift wrapping room is located in Ossining.

Please register on Event Brite:

The shifts are:

Shift 1: 9:00am – 11:00am
Shift 2: 11:00am – 1:00pm
Shift 3: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Shift 4: 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Volunteers should arrive 15 minutes early for sign-in and instructions!

Open Door will need lots of volunteers in November and December too! Help to post flyers, deliver toy drop boxes, pick-up toy drop box, gift wrap and help at one of our five Santa Days.

Toy Drive Hosts are still needed to help Open Door have a new toy for all of our young patients from infants to age 14. Our goal is 2,500 new, unwrapped toys and gifts with a value between $10 - $20. Please consider hosting a Toy Drive, a 50/50 Raffle at an event you already have planned, or pass a ‘Jar for Joy’ to collect funds to help Open Door to purchase gifts. Holiday gift wrap, curling ribbon and size AAA, AA, C, D and 9 volt batteries are also needed!

Toys can be donated at any Open Door Health Center, at one of our toy drive host locations or bring to our wrapping event. Monetary donations are also accepted and 100% of funds donated to the toy drive are used to purchase gifts for our young patients. Please visit our website then click on Events in the lower right hand corner and type Toy Drive in the comment field.

To host a toy drive, host a collection for funds, or other volunteer support please contact Alicia Ward, Volunteer Coordinator or calling 914-502-1468.

Open Door gives thanks for all of our wonderful neighbors and community partners!
