Come for an hour or come out all day - any amount of help is welcome! We need at least 6-8 volunteers each day.

Here are some ways volunteers assist: designating holding areas, ensuring classes are on-time, handing camera cards to teachers, organizing the line to be photographed, assisting with class photos, and making sure the kids look OK (hair in place, clean faces, collars straightened, etc. - PARENTS WILL THANK YOU!)
