Elf for a Day - Volunteering at the YWCA

Elf for a Day - Volunteering at the YWCA

To support the YWCA Emergency Shelter during the busy holiday season, 6 GOLDMARK team members volunteered their time at the shelter on December 12th.

Around this time of the year, the shelter gratefully receives thousands of donations from our generous Fargo-Moorhead Community. With fun events and many programs taking place, the shelter staff cannot sort the donations fast enough. That's where we stepped in to help.

Our 6 team members sorted through piles of new winter coats, clothing, household goods, and helped move everything to various locations around the shelter.

In addition to organizing donations, our help was also needed decorating for the upcoming Winter Wonderland event that will be held on Thursday, December 14th for shelter residents. While the children are taken on a fun outing, the women at the shelter enjoy an elegant dining experience all to themselves. When reunited later in the evening, special guests arrive by sleigh to bring individualized gifts for the children!

GOLDMARK is happy to help support the YWCA in all of their efforts financially and by sending volunteers. We're looking forward to the next opportunity we get to help out!
