First, let us say thank you for considering the gift of your time.
The most precious of all gifts, one’s time, is perhaps the most meaningful gift we can receive. In fact, without the support of volunteers like you, our work would not be possible.
How to Help
Volunteer at One of Our Fundraising Events
Gobble Wobble – 27 years in the “running,” this annual 5K Run/Walk is held each year at 8:30AM on Thanksgiving at West County Assembly of God in Chesterfield. Please assist us with registration activities, water stations, and course marshall or finish line activities. We also appreciate you promoting the 5K through your personal social media. Your volunteering will be eligible for service hours!
Benefit Auction Gala – Our largest fundraiser of the year requires a lot of volunteers to insure its success! Beginning now through the evening of the event, April 29, 2016, we need volunteers to offer their time, talents and donations for the pursuit, creation and promotion of the live and silent auction items. Your marketing skills will be highly valued as it is our goal to maximize attendance. The day of the event, we will appreciate volunteers working in a myriad of position to help us keep the night running smoothly. The Gala will be held at the Holiday Inn Route 66 on Watson Road.
Classic 100 Golf Marathon – Mark the date of Monday, September 19, 2016 as a day of golf that you will not forget at Aberdeen Golf Course in Eureka. Think now of how you can “sink” a corporate sponsorship for this event while looking through your contact list to invite those who would appreciate playing up to 100 holes of golf…with unlimited golf balls…and drive their own cart. Join other volunteers in preparing and serving breakfast + lunch items for the golfers. Or simply play golf and use your servant’s heart to commit to pledging several dollars per hole.
