About

Take your support to new heights...350 feet to be exact! Well actually, we're looking for those who want to be part of the action, but are interested in staying grounded. Join Olive Crest on November 4, 2017 for Drop to Stop Child Abuse, a peer-to-peer fundraising event (www.olivecrest.org/droptostop2017). Participants can rappel down the side of Caesars Palace in exchange for raising funds to help prevent child abuse in Nevada. All funds raised will stay in southern Nevada to help at-risk youth and families in crisis.

This is a big event and we need two sifts of 25-30 volunteers (50-60 total) as follows:

All positions will assist with some set-up and break-down based upon shift. Volunteers will be standing, some positions require continuous walking/movement, and may be asked to assist with moving up to 20 pounds. Morning shift will be provided lunch after training for relief volunteer. Afternoon shift will be provided a snack mid-shift. All volunteers will be issued a t-shirt, which must be returned at the conclusion of the shift.
