  • Volunteers are needed to help make our School Kickoff Celebration a success! We will need help at the event with many tasks including set up before the event, greeting people and handing out event information, distributing backpacks to students, food service and distributing lunch, and cleanup and breakdown after the event. If you are not available the day of the event, we will also need help earlier that week with stuffing backpacks with school supplies for the giveaway.  Volunteer positions that are still needed can be found HERE.
