Volunteers needed for school kickoff event
Greeley-Evans School District 6 is seeking volunteers to help at its School Kickoff Community Celebration, to be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, August 8 at Island Grove Regional Park.
The School Kickoff Community Celebration is an annual event that raises money through sponsorships and donations to give away backpacks, school supplies and provide a free lunch to District 6 students, staff, families and community members. The event also includes community information booths, student entertainment, a petting zoo, face painting and many fun activities for families.
More than 100 volunteers are needed to make this event possible. Volunteer opportunities include parking cars, giving out backpack wristbands and backpacks, serving lunch, blowing up and handing out balloons, face painting, setup and cleanup, assistant with the student entertainment stage, handing out event information and much more.
This year, District 6 has raised enough money to provide 2,200 backpacks filled with school supplies and lunch to 2,000, while supplies last. Students must be present at the event to receive a backpack, and will receive a wristband upon entering the grounds to pick up their backpack in the Event Center anytime during the kickoff. Backpacks and supplies are provided to registered District 6 students only.
To sign up as a volunteer, please call Community Engagement Specialist Cassie Noble at (970) 348-6223 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the event, please visit www.greeleyschools.org or call (970) 348-6000.
