St. James Backstretch Buddies

St. James Backstretch Buddies

We need your help!

Another wonderful summer is coming up at the racetrack and also a volunteer opportunity for adults and youth (6th grade and up)! Volunteer spots are limited to 25 youth and 10 adults.

St. James is helping local families who live in the backstretch at Arlington Park Racecourse. We are looking for middle schoolers through adults (must be Virtus trained) to come to the backstretch and spend time with the families. We will be doing arts & crafts, music, sports/games, reading stories and more! This will take place on Thursday afternoons from June 13th-August 8th from 2:00-4:00 PM.  We will not meet on July 4 or July 25. Whether you can volunteer your time one Thursday or every Thursday, we would love to have you!

**There will be a volunteer meeting for adults and youth on Sunday, June 9th from 5:30-6:30 in the O'Brien room in the basement of the parish center. The purpose of this meeting is to pass out t-shirts, go over volunteer jobs, sign up for volunteer jobs and a few other details. All volunteers- please fill out this google form by Monday, June 3 so we can gage your interest and order the t-shirts in time for our first week.

If you cannot volunteer but would like to donate supplies, please sign up for an item(s) on one of the dates. Supplies may be dropped off at Marni Hanson's house: 1010 E. Talbot Street in AH.

Meet at the Arlington Park Racecourse backstretch. Directions: Take Euclid west past the racetrack and turn right at Rohlwing Road. Take Rohlwing Road until it deads ends and turn right. Drive up to the security gate and say you are with "St. James Church". They will let you drive through the gate and there is a parking lot on the left. You will see St. James parishioners there to greet you. There will be a check-in table where you will receive you volunteer assignment and name tag. Pick up is in the same place at 4:00 PM.

*All volunteers please wear St. James volunteer t-shirts so we can identify you as a volunteer. If you do not have one we can provide you with one when you come to volunteer or wear a GREY t-shirt.
