WAYS TO VOLUNTEER
BRING A TRUNK | You can partner with your Life Group, OR get a few friends together and come up with a themed trunk. The more creative, the better! If you are setting up a trunk, we need you to arrive at FBC at3:30 on Sunday afternoon. You should plan bringing enough candy (1 piece/child) to give to the approximately 1,000 kids we expect. Please sign up for your trunk PRIOR to October 20th so that we can plan accordingly. This year, we will have a limited number of indoor hallway trunk spaces available! If your group is planning to be outdoors, it's a great idea to think about an alternative plan in the case that the event gets moved inside due to rain.
**As you dream up some amazing ideas, you'll need to decide whether your trunk will be an interactive trunk (think obstacle course, game, challenge, etc.) or one that only hands out candy. We've seen awesome examples of both! (One of last year's trunks had puppies! Talk about interactive!)
OUTDOOR GREETER | We need friendly faces to greet and engage in conversation with visitors in the line, check out some amazing costumes coming in, and help point people in the right direction as they enter the experience. We would need you to be @ FBC andready to go at 4:30 pm.
INDOOR GREETER | If you like the sound of being a greeter, but you'd rather stay inside where it's warm and toasty, we have a spot for you inside our building where guests will be exploring indoor trunks and jumping on the inflatables! We would need you to be @ FBC andready to go at 4:30 pm.
SET UP | Trunk or Treat is one of our biggest events to pull off, and it takes an army to make sure everything goes smoothly! If you'd like to help get things ready, you can join us @ FBCat 3:00 pm.
TEAR DOWN | We need willing hands to help with tear down, crowd control, emptying trash, and taking things inside as things wind down. We would need you to start helpingat 7:15 pm.
PARKING | We'll need a parking crew to help direct parking of decorated cars, volunteer cars, and visitor cars as they arrive. We would need you tostart at 3:00 pm.
INFLATABLES | The inflatables are always a highlight with the kids! We need individuals to keep the line moving and help kiddos on the slide and in the bounce houses. This might be the MOST fun volunteering position of them all! We would need you to be in place by 4:30 pm.
AFTER PARTY SET UP | After Trunk or Treat, our church family and everyone who volunteers sticks around for some food and fellowship. We'll need some help with set up. If you'd like to help Laura Johnson with this, we wouldneed you at 7:00 pm.
PRE-EVENT CHILDCARE | If you'd like to provide childcare during our set up time so that parents can volunteer and make sure we're ready to go, we'd love for you to help in this area! We would need you from 3:15 - 4:30 pm.
PROVIDE CANDY | We always need candy to have on hand to pass out! You can drop off candy @ FBC at the Connection Point on Sunday morning. Please note; all candy must be individually wrapped.
