Volunteer! 

The Holiday House Tour requires a tremendous amount of effort and energy from volunteers. To make the event successful, PHW is always looking for people to lead tours as docents, provide musical entertainment, or help decorate the homes.

Donations of fresh greenery are also welcome. The Shop is always in need of magnolia, berried holly, nandina berries, boxwood, pine, and other greenery. If you would like to donate greenery, PHW volunteers can trim your trees and bushes for you. Please contact PHW for more information or let us know how you can help.
