It’s that time of year again when actionchurch begins their final preparations for convergence on the annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life. This year the marathon event will be held at the York County Vocational School on South Queen Street. For over 24 hours on June 19th and 20th we plan to Love God, Love People and Take Action in some amazing ways. The following is a list of serving opportunities:
Set Up and Tear Down – In case you really miss carrying heavy things (now that we don’t have to unload/load a truck each week) please feel free to come out to the field at 8:00 a.m. and unload equipment and begin set up. Equally (and perhaps even MORE) important we need volunteers at the field at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday to begin tear down.
Shaved Ice – As a church we provide FREE (donations accepted for American Cancer Society) shaved ice throughout the event. As you can imagine it is a pretty busy place on a hot day. We need volunteers who don’t mind getting wet/sticky and who can still provide service with a smile.
Walkers – This is a marathon – after all! We need plenty of people in actionchurch T-shirts on the track, walking, running (or crawling) around the track logging laps CONTINUOUSLY throughout the 24 hour event. ** actionkidz – we especially need all of you between the hours of 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. We are counting on you to be the representatives on the track as the adults serve at the Survivor Banquet.
Survivor Banquet– All hands on deck for this portion of the event! We need ALL actionkidz to walk the track. We need our actionteens to serve beverages. We need volunteers to set up tables, decorate, deliver food, prepare plates, serve food, bus tables, seat survivors, empty garbage…..Let’s just say that if you are within a 10 mile radius of Vo-Tech while wearing an actionchurch T-shirt – we will find you and commandeer your services. Fair warning.
Coffee Hut– We provide FREE coffee ALL NIGHT LONG for anyone and everyone who happens to be awake in the wee hours of the morning. We need volunteers to make and serve the coffee. It is helpful if you are a night owl, with a good personality…..and you like coffee.
Kids Action Area– Throughout the event we staff an area complete with bounce houses, crafts, games and fun stuff for the kiddos! We need loving, nurturing adults who can supervise all the craziness that kids can dish out. This is a great area for you if you happen to have kids…..or you just like to act like a kid!
Breakfast – Beginning around 5:30 a.m. we begin to fire up the grills in preparation for serving a hot breakfast to all the participants of the event. Rub the sleepy dust out of your eyes! We need people to help set up, people to cook and people to serve…..then – you guessed it – people to clean up after breakfast is over.
We also have a list of items that we need donated to make this event successful. Stop by the RFL 2015 table Sunday morning OR email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
