SCARCE (School and Community Assistance for Recycling & Composting Education) is dedicated to educating people to conserve natural resources and energy, prevent pollution, reduce waste, recycle, and compost organic materials. Through that endeavor, they have established the Book Rescue Center and the Tools For Schools programs to rescue books and other educationally-related materials and provide them to those in need.
Dress: This is similar to a warehouse facility so dress in comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting a little dirty. In cooler months you might want to wear a sweatshirt until you get moving and the facility warms up.
We will be assisting with packing books or making crayons.
Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a national organization whose mission is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it.
Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Inc. (BNPCFI) is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in late 1992 by Kathleen A. Casey, President. The foundation is named in memory of her eight year old son, Barrett "Bear" Krupa, who died after a courageous five and a half year battle with Wilms Tumor, a pediatric cancer.
Every year Bear Necessities has a gala ball to raise funds. The event includes cocktails, dinner, a silent auction, a live auction, and a raffle. They need a lot of help with this event. Members have helped in the past and have had a lot of fun.
We will be volunteering from 4:30PM-12:30AM during the event. Tasks include registration, greeters, raffle sales, live auction spotters, silent auction monitors, etc. Dinner is provided to the volunteers. Dress is formal.
Please sign up by Feb. 1. I will be contacting the BN volunteer coordinator with our names.
