Cheer Box Program

For those that have lost a loved one, the holidays can be especially difficult. Cheer Boxes are a holiday box of family-friendly gifts that go out to all families that have felt the pain of losing a loved one; during the holiday season, we want to remind them that they have our support and care. EveryStep Grief & Loss Services hopes to provide Cheer Boxes to hundreds of families each holiday season.

Wrap and Deliver Gifts

A lot of love and hard work goes into our holiday cheer boxes, and that’s why we need your help! Volunteers can help wrap gifts, assist with the inventory process, and deliver boxes to families. No skills necessary and we’ll provide all the materials and instructions. This project begins in mid-November and ends in early December. You can volunteer as an individual or work with our team to organize a volunteer event with your business, church, or community group. To get more information about volunteering, contact Amanda Fagen at
