MDA Summer Camp Counselors NEEDED
June 4th thru June 11th
For the last several years the MDA Summer Camp held in Linwood, Kansas has not had enough volunteers for counselors, and particularly males. As the official charity of the IAFF and with over 1500 members in our local, we should take it upon ourselves to ensure the kids have the opportunity to enjoy camp with enough counselors.
Volunteering is an incredible opportunity to give a kid his/her best week of the year. Member for Member is available for shift coverage while volunteering at camp. For more information regarding what a Camp Counselor does click here.
MDA Single Day Volunteers Needed!
The MDA has asked if Local 42 could provide 2-3 volunteers per day to help run activities at the MDA Camp scheduled June 4-11, 2016. To volunteer you would be expected to arrive at the camp between 8-8:30 a.m. to help throughout the day until 5:30 p.m. We are not asking that members commit to the entire week, but would like to be able to provide different personnel each day. The camp is located in Linwood, KS approximately 45 minutes from Kansas City. Please note, the Local will not be able to provide member for member coverage to be a day volunteer.
If you have any questions or would like more information please contact L42 Business Agent Justin Abraham at 816.783.5450 or via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
