    Capital for Kids Volunteers Needed for Halloween Fest at the Promise House

    224 West Page Avenue

    Dallas, TX 75208

    10 volunteers
    Needed

    The project will consist of a several of Halloween themed competitions at several locations occurring simultaneously. Volunteers will run each competition ( with assistance from Promise House staff and Susan Nichol Executive Director of Capital for Kids). The youth will be divided into teams with each team winning at least one of the competitions.  Competitions include a pumpkin  decorating contest, creation of special Halloween treats( cookies)  and aprons, a “Thriller” dance off using  the Just Dance game on the Wii.
    The supplies for the activities will be provided and on site when the volunteers arrive.

    We will end with the children watching a Halloween themed movie  "Hocus Pocus".
    Agenda will be the following:
    •         1-1:30-Welcome, paperwork & station assignments
    •         1:30-2:00 p.m.-First Stations (estimated 30 minutes)
    •         2-2:30 p.m.-Second Stations (estimated 30 minutes)
    •         2:30-3:00 p.m.-Third Stations (estimated 30 minutes)
    •         3-3:15 p.m. –Announce winning teams of each station
    •         3:15-4:30ish-Movie "Hocus Pocus" Snack Consumption!

    The movie concludes the project so the youth have a chance to wind down after the day’s activities and so that any volunteers who need to duck out a bit early can do so with ease. The children and teens of the Promise House attend DISD school onsite at the Promise House. This will be a great opportunity for them to celebrate the end of a school week. I have no doubt you will have an incredible time with the children of the Promise House.

    Let me know if you can help serve next Friday.
