We provide up to six volunteers at each of two after-school sites on Mondays-Wednesdays during the school year. Sandy Acres usually is open from 2:30-6:30 p.m., while Forest Lakes Park usually is open from 3:30-6 p.m. Both locations are open from 12:15-4 p.m. on early-release days.
We also help with the 5-week summer program at Forest Lakes Park from 9-1, Monday-Wednesday.
Volunteers are asked to help once a week, if possible, and must be certified by the state to work with children (fingerprinting, background check) and complete an application.
Both programs, plus Camp SoZo, are closed until further notice because of COVID-19 restrictions.
We need volunteers to help with a variety of fundraisers and events we already have set up. However, we encourage you to come up with your own fundraisers, as well. We just ask that you let us know of your plans so we don't have conflicting events or go after the same donors. Thanks.
See our "Projects" page for a list of major recurring fundraisers. We also need folks to help with newly identified projects, such as the Summer Activity Kits.
If you want to join our list of volunteers, please contact us at Contact@FriendsOfSoZoKids.com.
Friends of SoZo Kids Inc. normally meets on the 1st Monday of the month (2nd Monday in September). Because of COVID-19, we have been meeting via Zoom. But we're taking a break from meeting for the next month or so, relying instead on this website, eblasts, and media announce-ments to get out the word about our plans.
We will be looking for new Board Members with terms starting Jan. 1, 2021. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us at Contact@FriendsOfSoZoKids.com
