Chipper is a mascot who greets visitors at Children's Hospital. Volunteers wear a mascot costume and entertain young visitors, handing out coloring books and crayons. The costume is not especially heavy, but it can get warm. We have an ice vest which helps.
Volunteers need to be animated and enthusiastic while also being silent - Chipper doesn't speak! You will have assistants with you at all times to help with everything.
We need volunteers who can do this once or twice a month on a Tuesday morning from 9:15am-10:30am. There are also other opportunities to play Chipper at community events or other times at the hospital.
