Best Christmas Volunteer Opportunities in New York

Elves Needed!


Here are two of our St. Nicholas volunteers from last year's shopping day

At Catholic Charities we have the best Christmas Volunteer opportunities in New York. 

Our St. Nicholas Project has it all – donations from donors and lists from families in need. 

All we need is YOU to act as Santa’s elves. 

Choose from one of our two Kmart Shopping Days. Then:

  • Grab a list detailing what a specific family needs
  • Dash down Kmart aisles to fill it
  • And drop it off – prepaid by our donors – at a cash register set aside just for you and our fellow elves

What a great way to kick off the Christmas season!

Join our St. Nicholas Project Shopping Day Team and help provide basic necessities to make a joyous Christmas. Generous donors, volunteers and parish groups will then distribute  the winter coats, hats, gloves, scarf’s, sweaters, blankets and more you stuffed in your shopping carts to families who otherwise would go without during this blessed season.

The St. Nicholas Project also provides critical social services to families in need throughout the year. They include nutritious meals, job readiness training, housing assistance, immigration and refugee resettlement counseling.  And we provide gifts for thousands of individuals and families who otherwise could not afford Christmas gifts. 

Bring family and friends to sign up for our:
