Volunteers are essential to helping EOB achieve its core. The generous donation of time, skills, and service from volunteers allows EOB to host individual parties for multiple children at multiple shelters every single month.
Volunteers are the primary building blocks of each Extra-Ordinary party. Their energy sets the tone of the party and is directly responsible for how the child reflects on their day and how all of the other party participants reflect on the overall event. They do more than play the essential role of delivering the parties to children and their families: they offer insights into compassion and openness that may deviate from the typical experiences of the children.
Creativity, adaptability, organization and care are the key ingredients in the recipe that is the ideal Extra-Ordinary Birthdays volunteer. With their creativity, diversity, and interest to serve, these eager volunteers make EOB happen and lift the organization.
There are several ways to join the EOB Team as a volunteer.
Extra-Ordinary Party Host Volunteer – helping to decorate/set-up, serve snacks and cake, and entertaining kids through games and activities during Extra-Ordinary birthday parties.
Extra-Ordinary Party Planner Volunteer – preparing games, activities, crafts, goody bags, and all other aspects of Extra-Ordinary birthday parties planning prior to party day.
Gift Wrapper – are you one those few people that has the gift of gift wrap? We need you on our team! Join us once of a month to wrap birthday gifts for children experiencing homelessness.
Bin Deliverer – on the last Friday of each month, we need volunteers to pick up birthday bins full of party supplies and deliver them to the shelters we serve.
Wish List Specialist – ensuring that every child receives a gift from their wish lists.
