Educare Family Health Project's YMCA Launch Party
Volunteers are needed for a YMCA family membership launch party. Volunteer activities will be varied and geared toward facilitating the party, and dinner and free event t-shirts will be provided. Childcare while parents undergo a brief health screening will be a main volunteer activity. The Educare Family Health Project (EFHP) is a George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF) grant-funded health-access initiative for families at Educare. Educare is an early childhood education center that serves children of families at a low federal poverty level and foster children. These children are at a developmental disadvantage, and Educare's aim is to break the cycle of generational poverty by providing an educational environment that better equips them for elementary school. One of the benefits available for Educare households through EFHP is a free YMCA membership. YMCA memberships begin for the families with a party which includes free dinner, t-shirts, a smoothie bar, a Zumba class and other exercise demos, a health screening, open family swim, and more. For Educare MacArthur, this party is scheduled for Sunday November 23rd, 2014 from 5:00 to 8:00PM. November 23rd is the Sunday preceding the Thanksgiving week. A volunteer orientation and setup will begin at 4:00PM, and volunteers with only partial availability are welcomed. Volunteers will mostly help in childcare, which is only provided while parents are in the Zumba class or the health screening, but they will also serve dinner, hand out t-shirts, and generally facilitate the event. Please contact me by e-mail, call, or text if you have any interest in volunteering with EFHP on November 23rd. Thank you for your time and consideration! We're excited to be able to provide this opportunity to Educare families and TU students.

The Tulsa Zoo is looking for volunteers for our annual HallowZOOeen fundraising event. We would love for you to join our volunteer family. HallowZOOeen spans the last five days of October and is mostly geared towards elementary school aged children. It is a huge fundraiser for the Tulsa Zoo, and we would love if you could help make it a spooky success! We still need volunteers Monday, Oct. 27th through Friday, Oct 31st. Please let me know which night(s) we can count on you to volunteer. Here are the dates and shifts: -Mon. Oct. 27th 5:30pm to 9:30pm -Tue. Oct. 28th 5:30pm to 9:30pm -Wed. Oct. 29th 5:30pm to 9:30pm -Thu. Oct. 30th 5:30pm to 9:30pm -Fri. Oct. 31st 5:30pm to 9:30pm The event officially ends at 8:30pm meaning we allow new guests to enter the front gate all the way up to 8:30pm. We want to give those guests a chance to experience the event which is why we require the volunteers to stay until 9:30pm. However, if the weather is cold or rainy then the crowd naturally thins out by 8:30pm and you’d probably be released at that time. It just depends on the crowd, however the event will go on rain or shine, so dress accordingly. Volunteer assignments vary from handing out trick or treating bags and maps, passing out candy, Jupiter jump attendants, carnival game attendants, fake tattoo attendants, mini pumpkin painting attendants, hay maze attendants, and more!
