Volunteer Experience

Our society today is plagued with a state of inaction. We often see unfortunate family situations and only feel bad about it (sympathetic), but our volunteers get off the sidelines and take compassionate action. There is a difference.

“A few years ago, we started looking for worthwhile volunteer opportunities. We began volunteering with Jarel's Toy Chest in December of 2009 and the rest is history. We have all met so many wonderful people and have made new friendships with other volunteers.”

Volunteers

We got involved by hosting gift wrapping sessions. Our company donated financially for every hour each store employee volunteered. The day of event was so heart wrenching and the smiles were priceless.

Some parents have hardships that many children cannot see. We’re here to help lighten that load and bring joy to families.
