Volunteers Needed: SUMMER CAMP MEAL TIME!
*For many of our summer camp children, this food program fills the nutritional gap of a summer away from school. You will be keeping little bellies full who may otherwise not have access to daily breakfast and lunch. They will be ready to learn, play, and have fun!*
We are looking for service minded individuals, youth groups, church groups, office mates, retirees, anyone who wants to help! This summer we need volunteers to serve lunch to kids. We have two locations, the Downtown YMCA at 701 S 4th and our campgrounds, Camp Wa-Kon-Tah, 6602 Ironbridge Road.
The food is catered by Nelsons Catering. The tasks include spooning portions onto plates, pouring milk, assisting young children to tables and other things associated with lunch service.
We understand summer can be a busy time. Even if you can only come one time, we’d be appreciative! The days and times are listed below. Please contact Lisa at 217-544-9846 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for shifts.
