The White House Historical Association is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that is dedicated to the preservation, research and education of the Executive Mansion. The annual Official White House Christmas Ornament has been a staple of our organization since 1981, and this year we are celebrating the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The kiosk at Pentagon City Mall will be located next to the Santa Experience, and customers will have the opportunity to purchase the ornament as they exit the event. Due to the large crowds that the mall has for this event we are in need of staff to manage the kiosk and sell the ornament. This is a part-time, limited engagement position. It will be held from November 16th to December 24th, and will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
