Thank you for your interest in helping Christmas Storybook Land! We appreciate your time and effort.
- First, check out our volunteer activities. The descriptions here will give you an idea of the tasks involved, plus the times and dates.
- You will need to fill out the registration form. You will be prompted to set up a user name and password.
- You may then log in at any time and schedule yourself for any volunteer activities you wish to participate in.
- If you wish to participate again next year, you will not need to re-register. Simply log back in.
Adult volunteers may list any accompanying children under 13 on their account when they register as a Storybook Land volunteer.
Adults are responsible for accompanying and supervising any child 13 or under.
Children ages 13 – 17 may register here.
Please note: all children under 18 will need to provide a signed parental/guardian consent form.
We began using new registration software starting in 2017. If you last volunteered prior to that, you will need to register here once, which will allow you to create a user name and password. You can then log in at any time and schedule yourself for any volunteer activities you wish to participate in.
In the future, you will be able to log into the same account and sign up for activities there without the need to re-register. If your email account has changed and you can’t log in, please let us know and we can update your account.
If you have already worked with us after 2017, you do not need to register and can log in here to schedule your volunteer time with us.
You can locate and download all of our forms on the form page here.
Insurance requirements prohibit Christmas Storybook Land from registering volunteers who are doing community service hours required by the court system.
If you have decorations, lights, or other Christmas item for donation, call our Scene Development Chairperson at 541-926-4072 or contact us through the website.
I like to knit/sew/make things, and I heard you give gifts to the individuals who come on Senior Day. Do you take donations for giveaways?
