Boys & Girls Club of the San Fernando Valley


The Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley has a large project coming up and we need the help of volunteers. A KaBOOM! playground is being donated to our site by a local community member who won a contest sponsored by the Chrysler Foundation. On Saturday, March 21, the playground and surrounding area will be built and landscaped all in one day by 250 community volunteers! The only tools that will be used are small drills and volunteers' hands. Construction volunteers will be broken up into smaller groups to be led by Build Captains, who must attend a one-hour training session prior to Build Day. Volunteers are also needed to help with prep work on Thursday, March 19, and possibly Friday, March 20 (depending on how well Thursday goes). Volunteers are also needed to help with breakfast and lunch preparation and service, youth involvement, and various other tasks. Here are the details: - Prep Day 1 - Thursday, March 19, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. --- Build Captain Training - March 19, noon - 1 p.m. (All Build Captains MUST Attend) - Prep Day 2 - Friday, March 20. This is a "what if" day. Times and tasks will depend on the previous day - Build Day - Saturday, March 21. Build Captains arrive at 6:30 a.m. Volunteers arrive at 7:45 a.m. and must register. Volunteers should plan to stay until around 4 p.m. --- This is a rain or shine event. It will only be postponed due to unsafe conditions, such as lightning, fires, etc. --- Breakfast and lunch will be provided - We are requesting that groups interested in volunteering for this event let us know by March 11. Please include the number of people in your group and a contact person and his/her information.
