CASA: Kids for CASA Holiday Bear Event / Youth & Advocate Holiday Drive Through Experience (Volunteers Needed!)

December 12, 2020

Name of Event: Kids for CASA Holiday Bear Event
Short description
Children will be arriving at this event with their parents to “build-a-bear” for a youth in the foster care system. We are expecting approximately 200-250 youth to be arriving during shifts that they had previously signed up for to stuff a bear that will then be given back to a child that we are serving in the OC foster care system. We will need assistance from volunteers in manning the line, helping the children with stuffing the bears, and possibly assisting with parking and crowd control.
Volunteer shifts will begin around 8am or 9am (to be determined in November 2020) to assist with set-up of the event, and will go until approximately 3pm or 4pm to assist with the tear down and clean up of the event. We are looking for approximately 6 volunteers for an early shift of this event, and 6 volunteers for a later shift at this event
