Event Details

VOLUNTEER WITH US AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Hello Especially Needed Volunteers!

The Especially Needed Fall Carnival is next weekend and we really need your help.  We have 50 volunteer positions still available.

It's time for our most anticipated event of the year, our Fall Carnival! Especially Needed can't host such a fun and exciting event without the assistance of amazing volunteers like you!

As always, our Fall Carnival is filled with fun activities for the families. We will have carnival games, food, drinks, dancing, trick or treating, a petting zoo, face painting, a balloon artist, a resource fair and much more!

Ready to be a part of the magic this year?

We have several volunteer shifts available and know that every single role is vital to the success of the carnival. There are a couple of things to consider before signing up to volunteer:

  • We ask that all volunteers are 14 and up.
  • We ask that any students that require written validation of their volunteer hours seek out our volunteer coordinator after your volunteer shift is over so that she can sign your paperwork. 
    • Be aware of the weather - if you sign up for a shift and area that may be outside and if it is cold please wear warm sweaters, gloves, closed-toed shoes and/or anything else you may need to be comfortable.
  • Honor your commitment - we need all hands on deck during the entire shift
  • Bring a positive attitude - it's a fun event and a beautiful day to be a part of! Be ready to work, have fun and make a difference with Especially Needed!

We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting a whole lot of new ones.  Please don't hesitate to e-mail us if you have any questions regarding volunteering; Our volunteer coordinator is Nechole Whitlock and you can email her at nechole@especiallyneeded.org or 972-567-8005.

If you would like to donate to Especially Needed, sponsor this event, be part of the resouce fair or inquire about anything regarding Especially Needed, please visit our website or contact Nechole Whitlock (nechole@especiallyneeded.org or 972.567.8005) or Heather Astuto (heather@especiallyneeded.org or 214.499.3439).
