Please Sign Up for Luminary Kits Assembly, Saturday, December 3

Please sign up, using our SignUpGenius, for Luminary Kits Assembly, Saturday, December 3, starting at 10:00 AM.

Note that due to respiratory illness concerns for our luminary kits event, we will again be limiting the number of volunteers – similar to 2021, and that there will again be only one shift for volunteers, from approximately 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM.

In particular, to try to ensure the safety of all volunteers and their families at home, we will encourage that masks be worn for the tasks inside the-shelter house, where we will again have eight separate workstations, so as to try to maintain some social distancing. Volunteers for any task can include any youth middle-school age or older, due to the availability of effective vaccines for COVID and influenza this year.

Please sign up for one of these positions:

  • Inside the shelter house component assembly (up to 2 volunteers per each of the 8 workstations)
  • Outside the shelter house component assembly (up to 9 volunteers, plus the Event Chair)
  • Bundling supervisor (1 volunteer)
  • Pea gravel shovelers (up to 8 volunteers), who are requested to bring their own standard-size, pointed-tip garden shovel. There will be teams of two people at each of the 4 shoveling station chairs. Each shoveling team can decide how long each member will shovel, while the other team member holds open the grocery bags (team members could switch roles halfway through)
  • Bundles concierge (1 volunteer)
  • Take down / clean up (1 volunteer)

Pease note that even if you didn’t sign up beforehand on our SignUpGenius, but do show up to volunteer at 10:00 AM on Saturday morning, there may still be an open position for you to volunteer. However, we request that you do sign up ahead of time, and arrive a few minutes before 10:00 AM to reserve the volunteer position of your choice.

Dunkin’ donuts, coffee and hot chocolate will be served, and plenty of hand sanitizer will be provided inside the shelter house.

Regarding the Trustees picking up their bundles of kits for their Districts: We are asking the Trustees to start coming over no earlier than 11:30 AM on Saturday morning to pick up their bundles, so as not to increase the number of people present in the shelter house area during the kit assembly timeframe, which is expected to be 10:00 AM to about 11:30 AM, especially if it is not raining too hard that day.

Light Your Luminaries! Our luminary display evening will be Sunday, December 11, starting at 7:00 PM per the instructions which will be enclosed in each resident’s luminary kit.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or if you encounter any difficulty using our event’s SignUpGenius.

Thank you,
Will Pearce, Luminaries Event Chair
365 S. Selby Blvd
