LAKC-YLS Hosts 5th Annual Santa Snow Ball and Santa’s Hotline!
It is time again for LAKC-YLS Santa Snow Ball, which will be taking place on Wednesday, December 14, 2011! If you are not familiar with Santa Snow Ball, this event provides an evening of fun for families staying in local homeless shelters during the holiday season. At the event, each child under the age of 18 receives a gift, everyone is provided dinner, and there are countless activities for all to enjoy, including a visit and pictures with Santa, face painting, craft-making, and story-telling. The Kansas City Public Library, located at 14 West 10th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64105, has generously agreed to host the event, which will run from 5pm until 8pm. Garage parking will be available across the street from the Kansas City Public Library for $2.00.
LAKC-YLS is seeking volunteers and donations for this event, as detailed below.
At the event
December 14, 2011: We will need volunteers prior to, during, and after the event to decorate the venue, do activities with the children, visit with the families, help serve dinner, and then clean up at the end of the evening. The volunteers can sign up for either or both of the following shifts: Shift 1 – 4:30-6:30pm; Shift 2 – 6:30-8:30pm. If volunteers can help decorate during the afternoon, we will begin decorating around 3pm.
If you are interested in volunteering during the event, please contact Vedrana Balta at email@example.com or 816.360.4245.
December 12, 2011 – December 15, 2011: In conjunction with the Santa Snow Ball, LAKC-YLS also conducts Santa’s Hotline. LAKC-YLS needs volunteers to play Mr. or Mrs. Claus to place calls to a child who is expecting a call from Santa or Mrs. Claus. The children are always very excited to hear a jolly ho-ho-ho and it is sure to make their day! The calls are made from a volunteer’s home or office between 5pm and 8pm on December 12, 2011 through December 15, 2011.
If you have any further questions regarding volunteering for Santa’s Hotline, please contact Michael Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 816.714.3052.
If you would like information regarding registering a child to receive a phone call from Santa or Mrs. Claus, please contact Jessie Rosell at email@example.com or 816-460-5683.
In addition to volunteers, this event requires a substantial amount of resources. Please help us make the holiday season brighter for these children and families. A donation of only $5.00 supports an entire family’s activities for the evening; a donation of $10.00 covers one person’s meal; and a donation of $20.00 will buy a gift for a child. Donations can be paid to the LAKC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, earmarked for Santa Snow Ball. Every donation is appreciated and goes directly to the support to this event: the dinner for every attendee, the presents for the children, and the supplies for the activities.
If you are interested in making a donation, please contact Katie Zoogleman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 816-421-4460.
