 Volunteers of America Street Treats Volunteer Opportunity for 13 & over swimmers

October 29, 2017  12:00 to 4:00 pm

Meet at NW pool at 12:00 to carpool to Record Street campus.  Carpool will return to NW pool no later than 4:00 pm (subjcet to change and check with swimmer on time of return).

This event goes rain or shine. Last year was cold and raining the entire time, so kids need to be prepared.  Swim parkas are good if it is raining.  

The theme for this years event is Candy Land.   Dressing up is a must.  Pick your favorite Candy Land character.  Costumes make it more fun.

An email will be sent 2-3 weeks prior to the event to remind people to rsvp. Please RSVP to Deb DeRuse at  775 287 1972 so that she knows how many will be coming and arrange for transportation.  Swimmers may receive volunteer hours by signing up on the website.  Volunteer hours are provided for van decorating, passing out treats and bringing 2 bags of candy.

The age requirement to volunteer is 13 years old because of the location.  We will meet at the pool and carpool over, the location is not always the safest so NO dropping off or picking up of swimmers at the shelter.   We need to be together at all times and travel in and out of the shelter as a group.   

Every swimmer will need to bring 2 large bags of candy.

Like last year we will be the only group handing out candy.   This makes our stop very popular (especially with the little kids) so 2 big bags of candy for each swimmer to bring is necessary.

We will decorate the VOA van most likely the weekend before but time and location will be announced.   Parents are welcome to join.
