Volunteers arrive by 5:30, You will be fed and you will babysit either a child with disabilities or their sibling for a few hours. If you attend, you need to be able to stay the duration of the event, until 9:00, Because you will likely be assigned a specific buddy, leaving
or arriving during the event causes confusion and can leave a child unsupervised. Sign up on GC.
