Shopping Helpers for Child Focus.........

Remember the excitement of those weeks before a new school year started!?.....

You and your siblings went shopping with your parents for new clothes, shoes and school supplies. What fun it was to pick out the color of your folders and your new clothes for the new year!!

I'm so very excited about this opportunity, I personally dislike shopping...but this day is going to be so much FUN!

Saturday, August 17th, we'll be at Child Focus meeting several children in the foster care system. For this event 15 dependable A.O.K. members are needed to make this a very special day for these kids. Volunteers commitment time will be from 7:00am-12:30pm. Please keep that in mind when you RSVP.


Volunteers:

Please arrive promptly at Child Focus at 7:00am. 

7:00am-7:30am-Brief orientation

7:30am-meet some very awesome kids that are going to be very excited about their day.

7:30am-8:30-volunteers will be assisting with breakfast, hand painting, and other kid activities.

8:40am-we'll all board a bus that will take us to the friendly, neighborhood Kohl's Department Store. Each child that we'll be assigned to help shop has a budget to purchase 3 new outfits and 2 pairs of shoes. They'll all need help trying on shoes and selecting the right clothes.

11:00am-board the bus back to Child Focus.

Once we arrive back at Child Focus, tables will be set up with Back to School Supplies, Back Packs and a new book for each child. Many of these supplies have been generously donated by A.O.K. members. We'll assist getting them their supplies and help with the luncheon as well.

**All volunteers must fill out Section 1 the Child Focus application. The application is located above under the More tab in the Files section.

I'll see you there with my tall cup of Starbucks!

    Is anyone else having trouble downloading application?

    August 8, 2013

    • Denise

      Hi Joan, I uploaded another volunteer application in a PDF format. Only Section 1 needs to be completed. That would be just above the Health History.

    I see there is a space available and I'm first on the wait list. What do I need to do to participate in this event?

      Hello Vanessa, we had a cancellation for this event so I went ahead and added your name. I will need your last name to send over to Child Focus ASAP. You will also need to bring along with you the Child Focus Volunteer Application. It's located under the More tab in Files, here on our site.
      See you on Saturday!

      Sheryl, I got a message from you today, I thought you were going to change your RSVP to a No???

      August 8, 2013

  • Denise

    I was recently notified by Child Focus that anyone who volunteers with their agency must fill out their Volunteer Application. Due to the fact that we will be working directly with children in the foster care system this application is mandatory. I have uploaded a copy in the A.O.K. files, you can find it under the More tab.

    If you feel that you don't want to give out certain information please change your RSVP to a no. I totally understand. Also, I'm still waiting for a few of you to shoot me over your last name as well.
