Summer Volunteer Opportunities

We will be updating this list frequently, so check back often :). All the specifics are too much to list here, but contact my mom at 330.714.8898 or me at rayshope167@gmail.com.

May 31st – Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack 7:30-9:30 in Bath (this event does require pre-registration)

June 3rd – Portrait mini-sessions at my house in Kent. You can check out the details on my mom’s FB page. We will be helping to make sure the sessions run smoothly and make signs for the Lemon Shake-Up Fundraiser. We will also cover light plates for the Georgia bedrooms in glitter.

June 9th and 10th – Neighborhood Garage Sale in River Bend. 9th from 9-5, if we are busy. If we are not, we’ll shut down sooner. 10th from 9-1, only if we are busy. We will sell concessions and household items. My mom is not a saver. She donates everything, so we don’t have that much to sell. If you have anything you would love to get out of your house, we would be so happy to sell it for a good cause. All sales will go to House of Hope. We have trucks that can pick up big items. If you have any questions and for more details, please contact my mom at 330.714.8898.

June 17th – Kent Flea Market 9-4. We will be selling Lemon Shake-Ups to benefit House of Hope. Come for part or all of the time. We would love to have you!

June 22nd – We have been selling raffle tickets for a gorgeous silver and amethyst pendant donated by Bella Design Jewelers. If you would like to help sell tickets, we would soooooo appreciate the help. The live FB drawing will be held on the 22nd at Bella Designs. Anyone who would like to join us for dinner and the drawing at the jewelry store is welcome.

July 14th – Our family’s friend, Patty, is chairing a FMSC Mobile Pack in Hudson next Spring. This is an enormous undertaking. We are going to sell concessions at her neighborhood garage sale from 9-3. We’ll play music and have lunch brought in. Join us!!
