The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Kids Get Arthritis, Too! The Arthritis Foundation is hosting an event called JA Family Day for children who have juvenile arthritis or other childhood rheumatic diseases, their siblings, and parents or guardians. This will be a luau-themed fun day of educational speakers, activities and meeting other families. We need approximately 6-8 volunteers to come dressed in luau themed prints (not required but if possible). They will be divided into areas such as registration, kids zone, snacks and drinks.
There will be 2 volunteers at registration, 2 with snacks and drinks and 4 with the kids zone. Each area will be responsible for decorating and putting everything out for their area (everything needed will be supplied). At the end of the program each area will be responsible for packing everything back up neat and orderly as we have to use this same supplies at another event.
For the Kids Zone if you have any special talents such as face painting please let us know as we need to have a couple of people that can do this as it is a popular project for the kids.
So come have some fun!!! Location of Event: Highland Recreation Complex 400 Highland Avenue NE Largo, FL 33770
If you'd like to volunteer please contact Mariel Armitage at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, telephone and email.
