Support Catholic Charities' St. Nicholas Project Shopping Day by volunteering on Saturday, Dec. 15. Last year, the St. Nicholas Project helped more than 4,000 of the New York area's most vulnerable individuals and families receive coats, hats, gloves, blankets, and other essential items to help keep them warm throughout the winter season.
Although volunteers are welcome between the hours of 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m, Loyola volunteers are scheduled to work from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. We'll be performing a variety of tasks which are explained below. Afterwards, all volunteers are welcome to join us for food and drinks at a nearby restaurant/bar.
