Volunteering at Special Events


There are several special events that we host throughout the year, among them the 3 Days of Thanksgiving and the 3 Days of Christmas.  These events present great opportunities for you to become involved in helping the needy of our community.  They also serve as a way of introducing what we do and what goes on at Crossroads Mission if you don't know us.


We invite you to be a part of one of our events.  The ways that you can help are endless!  Some of our events serve over 3,000 meals in a couple of hours.


We also welcome your volunteering efforts in organizing your own special events to raise funds and awareness for Crossroads Mission.  Visit our To Help page for more information.
