HEB Gift Card Program Volunteers

Each month, the HEB Gift Card Program acquires new participants.  As the program grows, we need more help.  We need volunteers to help with gift card distribution each month.  This is a great volunteer opportunity that can be done from home.

  • Card Distribution Coordinator (1): Collect gift cards from our partner school, coordinate monthly gift card distribution, record keeping, and respond to customer questions (2-3 hours/month).
  • Card Distribution Assistants (1-2): Meet with coordinator once a month for gift card distribution - envelope stuffing, labeling, and stamping (1-2 hours/month).

Interested? Email Emily Mirkin

If you aren't feeling crafty, but want to help, we are collecting materials for decorations.  Any of the items listed below would be greatly appreciated!

  • Colorful craft "poof" balls
