Volunteer Opportunities


    Volunteers are needed to help make our School Kickoff Celebration a success! We will need help at the event with many tasks including setting up before the event, greeting people and line management, distributing backpacks to students, food service and distributing sack lunches, and cleaning up/breakdown after the event. If you are not available the day of the event, we will also need help the day prior to stuffing backpacks with sponsor material.  All volunteers will need to complete a volunteer application/background check through Raptor to participate.
