Each year, Mariners hosts the Foster Family Christmas Party. We partner with Orange County Social Services, and invite over 1,200 foster youth, their families and caregivers for an afternoon filled with a lot of fun, laughter, smiles, crafts, games, good food and blessings all around. Each child receives a wrapped gift to take home and open on Christmas morning.

Registration for this event is full   Serve opportunities sill available are the Foster Family Christmas Party Gift Store Serve (on 12/5/19), Decoration Serve (on 12/6/19) or the LCC Christmas Party on 12/14.

Be a Christmas Party Host
Our Guest Relations team is looking for some outgoing, fun volunteers to host our guests. Make them feel welcomed and show all the different areas of the Christmas party - food, crafts, gift store, fun zone and resource area. Have fun and share a meal, take a selfie, make a craft or play some games together. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect one-on-one with a special foster family.

Interested in being a host? Contact: [email protected]

We ask volunteers (one per family) to bring one of the following items (enough for 12 people): 

  • Tray of fresh-cut fruit
  • Two dozen homemade/bakery Christmas cookies

Please check in at the Volunteer Room in the Life Development Building, Room 208. Please park in the upper lot and arrive at your assigned time.
