Various activities and events are taking place all summer long! Requirements: Volunteers must be a minimum age of 18 years old. All volunteers must complete a brief application and background check.
Helping Kids Succeed - Waukesha
Whether you have 2 hours once or 2+ hours weekly, you can help provide backpack and supplies to students in need. We have hundred of hours this summer (6/15-8/15) to assist with supply check-in, or to help welcome supplies at Fill the Bus locations in Waukesha County on August 2, 2014 (Pewaukee, Waukesha, Oconomowoc, Delafield) and to fill the backpacks with supplies (8/1-8/22). "Many hands make light work" and the Coalition needs our community's help to be sure 2,000 students start off on the right foot this fall.
Tent Set Up – Menomonee Falls
Since 1959, Camp Pow Wow has been providing outdoor recreational opportunities for adults and children with disabilities. Located in scenic Menomonee Park, Pow Wow gives campers a taste of the camp experience without going too far from home. During the week, the campers stay in medium sized, canvas tents. We're looking for a group of 10-40 people to help set up these tents in order to prepare for camp. This task should take about 2 hours and free snacks will be provided. The date and time of this opportunity are flexible, and a group may schedule to help out on an upcoming weekday or weekend.
There will be some heavy lifting and a bit of maneuvering required in order to set up the tents.
