Friday, Dec. 7: Holiday Tower Lighting

Culver City Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department is looking for people will to help with the Holiday Tower Lighting.

According to the Culver City press release, “We need enthusiastic, reliable and fun-loving volunteers to help make this family friendly event a great one.  Volunteers must love kids and snow! We’ll need volunteers for decorating, arts and crafts, line control and more.”

There will be two volunteer shifts available: Decorating from 2-5:30 p.m. and Event Helpers from 5:30-9:30 p.m.  People should email Jill if interested.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays from Dec. 4 – Jan. 15: Culver City Walk ‘n Rollers Count

Walk ‘n Rollers, a group which helps kids get to school safely by helping to provide safe walking and riding routes to school, are gathering data on traffic conditions around Culver City schools.  This effort will help create a more complete picture of the traffic patters around Culver City schools.

“Volunteers are needed to visit school sites, observe key intersections and walk popular school traffic corridors for one hour shifts and document the number of pedestrians and cyclists as well as driver behavior.

Some volunteers will be asked to walk up to a mile, but others will be asked to monitor from a fixed position. Volunteers can bring a chair, something to drink and a hat for shade”, the press release said.

Volunteer shifts are from 8-9 a.m. each day, except for Dec. 12 and 18, when it will be from 7:45 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Please email Jim for more details.

A Child’s Dream Annual Holiday Outreach – Sat., Dec. 15, 2018

A Child’s Dream will be hosting their annual holiday outreach in Culver City at the Teen Center on Overland Boulevard. Volunteers for this service opportunity are needed to assist with the distribution of toys, snacks, and groceries to children and their families.   Shifts will last at least two hours and will take place between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.

If interested, please contact A Child’s Dream to sign up.

Holiday Volunteering Resources

Not all service opportunities come in the form of volunteering time. For some individuals and families, a physical donation of goods or money works better.  For those families or businesses looking to give back this holiday season with a donation, please check out this resource on the City website.  Though this list has donation opportunities, there are other opportunities listed that require a physical presence as well, such as caroling in Culver City.

The Culver City Fire Department will also be hosting their annual Spark of Love Toy Drive and you can drop off a new toy at any CCFD Station. Look for more information on that event here.
