2023 Volunteer Details

Santa is so grateful for his elves! We have hundreds of elves signed up to wrap presents and be elf drivers for deliveries on Christmas Eve. THANK YOU!


For our volunteers:


Santa's Helpers Workshop for 2023 is located at:

Western Run Business Center


Important Details for Wrappers:


Wrapping takes place on Saturday, December 9th and Sunday, December 10th at our warehouse in Sparks, MD. Wrappers must sign up to volunteer for a shift at 10 am, 12 pm, or 2pm each day. We will be busy setting up and cleaning between shifts, so please don't come early. The door will open at 10 am each day.


Please bring your own scissors. Everything needed for wrapping will be provided by us. There will be instructions located at each table and Santa’s Staff Elves to answer questions. Veteran wrappers, please help new elves if you can. The success of delivering the right gift to the proper child depends entirely on the accuracy of the wrapping task, so please do not hesitate to ask if you aren’t sure of something.


Dress comfortably and festive. Wrapping takes place in a warehouse and former office space. Chairs and tables are provided as well as some refreshments. Bring your holiday spirit and helpful attitude!


Children are welcome. Though children are encouraged to help, we do not have the space for them to play at the wrapping tables.


Important Details for Drivers:

Santa’s Helpers Anonymous' Elves will have the gifts and food ready for delivery on Christmas Eve morning at our warehouse in Sparks, MD.

We have four shifts of drivers between 8:30 - 10:30 AM and will notify you a few days before the 24th with your assigned shift time.

For each of the 3-4 families that you are assigned you will need space in your vehicle for a box of food, a bag of gifts, a wrapped blanket, a cooked turkey, gallon of milk, pumpkin pie and pound of butter. Try not to bring extraneous things in order that you will have room for everything. Once loaded you should be able to complete your deliveries in 1-2 hours. Be mindful of the weather and dress accordingly. This is an outside venture and Santa MUST deliver no matter what the weather may be.


Directions to Santa's Workshop from beltway: Take I-83 north to the Shawan Rd East Exit. Continue past the Hunt Valley Mall and turn left onto York Rd. Go approximately 2.3 miles north on York Rd. Pass Loveton Circle, the large water tower on the right, and make the next left turn into Western Run Business Center. The building is on the right, adjacent to Trellis Middle and High School. It is one building North of the building last year, although the same physical address. There will be a sign in the door that says “Elf Door” and it is the door closest to the flag pole.  14600 York Road. If you get to Ridgebrook Road, you've missed us!



We look forwarding to seeing you.  Should you have any urgent questions please call us at 410-236-9326. Non-urgent questions can be directed to hohohelp@santashelpersanonymous.org
