Thank you for volunteering for the 5th annual Back To School Bonanza! on Saturday, August 27th at West Middle School, 500 Old Perch Rd., Rochester Hills 48309. Volunteers perform many vital event functions; most importantly they are the "face" of the event. We ask that volunteers...
Prepare Beforehand: Review the website (www.kidzkare.net/bonanza), especially the attendee map/instructions. Review the provider list and note their program descriptions and locations. Be prepared to work throughout your shift(s) with breaks as needed. We'll be working with large crowds at times. Remember, we want to serve the physical and emotional needs of kids and parents - let's make them feel welcome!
Dress Appropriately: We will provide a t-shirt and ask that you wear it at all times while on duty, to identify as a volunteer. Wear neat, clean clothing (shorts are fine) and non-marking shoes (to avoid damaging newly-finished gym floor). Remember, the most important thing to wear is a smile!
Arrive Promptly: Please arrive Saturday by 9am for morning and all day shifts, and at 11:30am for the afternoon shift. Park in the far back parking lot on the northwest side of the school building. Enter the building through the west door on the north side of the building which will be marked PARTNER/VOLUNTEER ENTRY. Turn left and the VOLUNTEERS room will be on your right.
Check-In Immediately: Check-in in the volunteer room upon arrival. You will receive your T-shirt, assignment, training and any necessary supplies. When you are finished with your shift, check out in the Volunteer room. If you can't locate Volunteer Manager, Steve Litz, you may contact him at 586-337-7607.
Enjoy Breaks/Lunch: Arrange for breaks with your manager and notify him/her if you need to leave your post during your shift. Buffet lunch service will be provided in the volunteer room.
Stay Flexible: The Volunteer Manager will confirm job assignments and provide training upon your arrival. Volunteers may be shifted between jobs as conditions change.
