October has crept up on us and we are already thinking about the holidays. This year is the 35th annual Festival of Trees and we need help to make it the most spectacular Festival ever. The dates of the 2018 Festival of Trees are November 21 through November 25. We also have volunteer opportunities on Sunday, November 18 for move-in.
Revenues raised from the 2018 Festivals of Trees will help fund the expansion of the Saint Alphonsus Cancer Care Center's Infusion Room and new technologies like virtual reality and art therapy to help reduce pain, stress and anxiety.
The students and teachers from your school are some of our most valuable volunteers. To be able to participate and volunteer, students must be at least 14 years old. The Festival is a fun way for students to earn their community service credits and help make a difference in healthcare in your community. The students should also be encouraged to make this special event a family volunteer opportunity. We would love to have teachers volunteer, too! Please have students sign up on their own. We are asking the Students to use their personal or parent's email address and not the school email address.

The volunteer registration is available until Friday, November 2, 2018.
We will be sending out shift confirmation emails to each student. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Thank you for all of your help! We hope to see you at the 2018 Saint Alphonsus Festival of Trees!
Please have students interested in volunteering register online. If there are any questions, please call Janelle 208-861-9949 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
