Rainbow Days

2017 Saturday with Santa

Rainbow Days needs your help to make our annual Christmas party for homeless children and parents a success!  On Saturday, December 9, we will serve more than 500 children, infants through Adolescents, and their families residing in area shelters and will provide them with a special day of family fun holiday-themed activities.  Volunteers are needed before, during and after the event.  ALL Volunteers are required to complete our online Volunteer Application (if you have not already completed one within the last 18 months) which can be found at: http://rainbowdays.org/more-ways-to-help/volunteer/volunteer-application/Please note, the deadline for completing your Volunteer Application AND Background Check is December 1st.

If group(s) have reserved spaces, please be sure to register under your designated area, or e-mail below for additional spaces.  For all others, please review the available positions to make your selection, and be sure to include your specific corporate/community group (i.e. YMSL - Plano, NCL - Turtle Creek, or Individual Volunteer) to ensure hours are credited to the appropriate team.  Should you have a specific area of interest for your team or questions, please either register under that duty or e-mail Wendi McMullen, wendim@rainbowdays.org or 214-217-3811.

 

Note:  If you need to drop off your baked goods on 12/08/17, you may do so at our corporate office from 9am to 5pm. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
