The Sensitive Santa event is a unique experience for children with special needs to enjoy some moments with Santa without having to wait in long lines or require costly pictures. With help from dedicated volunteers like yourself, we are able to make this a memorable day! The Sensitive Santa Event requires a LOT of volunteers to make the day successful, so thank you in advance for your help!
It all starts the night before the big day with Santa - we need help decorating rooms and transforming the location into a Santa Wonderland. We will do this on the afternoon of Friday, December 13th from 3 - 8 PM (or until we are finished).
On Saturday, December 14th, we need help all day long with these shifts:
-Set Up Crew: 6 AM to 8AM
-AM Shift: 7AM to 12PM
-PM Shift: 11:30 to 4:30PM
-All Day Shift: 7AM to 4:30PM
-Clean Up Crew: 4:30 to 6:30PM
Some of the things our volunteers help with would be: entertaining kids, leading families from room to room, making crafts, stocking food, finding families or anything else that might need to be done. We provide a Sensitive Santa shirt for each of our volunteers so they are easy to spot. We also provide snacks for everyone and lunch for the all day volunteers.
We love our volunteers, so help us spread the word that we are looking for help! Thank you!
**Please note: Are you a parent of a special needs child looking to volunteer? We ask that you only help us with the decorating the Friday before the event or with the Clean Up Crew on Saturday so you can enjoy the Santa experience with your child on the day of the event. The day of the event is your chance to have a special experience with your child and Santa, so please only sign up to help on the Friday before or Clean Up Crew after. Thanks!**
