HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

By spending time doing activities with our guests, you help them build positive relationships and make good choices about the way they spend their free time.

DESCRIPTION

Volunteers play a big role in providing special, fun activities for our family shelter guests. Bring your favorite crafts, sports, games, and brain power to the shelter and bring a smile to the faces of the kids who are staying here. Help build positive relationships with our guests through homework help and fun activities.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Supplies for whatever activity or craft you have selected to do at the shelter

2. Yourself (that's the most important part!)


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Maximum number of volunteers in a group is 10 (including children and parents), and children 16 years old and younger must be accompanied by adults. (Children under the age of 16 are not allowed in the kitchen per safety code.)
