⭐VOLUNTEERS NEEDED THIS SATURDAY NIGHT!!!⭐So sorry for the short notice but we will be hosting a booth at the Kennesaw Parks & Recreation Movie Night hosted at Swift-Cantrell Park on Saturday, June 3rd.
Volunteers needed to help at our outdoor booth to ask and assist the public to help us make Kindness Cards and/or Letters of Encouragement for two special donations that we will be making in July & Sept.
💙Kindness cards will be placed in backpacks that we will be donating in Aug & cards will also be given to sick kids in Sept. for our "Drops of Comfort & Care" program with Building Strong Horizons, Inc..
🕛Booth set up begins at 5:00 pm. Vendor activities for the public begin at 5:30 and go until approximately 9:00 pm. (Please feel free to volunteer for a bit and also wander with your child and check out the other activities). At 9 pm we will close up the booth, pack up and then plan on staying and watching the outdoor movie together.
🎥The movie that will be played is Marvel Studios' "Thor: Love & Thunder" which is rated PG 13. (Sorry I wish it wasn't a PG 13 movie but it just so happens to be). The movie is shown on a giant inflatable screen at sundown. You may bring chairs & snacks. Attendance is free.
Volunteer shifts are open to all ages who want to help. Parent or guardian must remain on premises as this is a public event in a public space. If your child is not 13 please feel free to come volunteer and check out all of the family fun vendors that are supposed to be available for free before the movie starts.
