|Duties||We are “Raising the Roof” once again! Please join the Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton on Tuesday, December 3rd to help raise funds for the “Raising the Roof” campaign and our own Bridging the Gap program. |
This is a fun, high-energy event that I am sure you and/or your youth will really enjoy!
Volunteers are needed to sell warm and trendy toques at two Burlington GO station locations. Burlington GO (at Fairview, near Walmart) and the Appleby GO station (Appleby and Harvester/Fairview). There is also the possibility that we can get an Oakville station.
The shifts are before school/work from 5:30-8:30am.
Teams of 8-10 volunteers who are bubbly, outgoing, and who wish to have fun by using noisemakers, playing music or wearing bright clothing in order to get the attention of sleepy commuters, would be fantastic!
We will have debit/credit machines available and Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton vests to help identify our volunteers.
