Give Back with Your Time
EVENT VOLUNTEERS: BBBS of McHenry County is always looking for volunteers to help with our Special Events and fundraisers. Each year, BBBS hosts 3 large fundraisers: Bowl For Kids' Sake, Swing For Kids' Sake Golf Outing, and The BIG Event. Leading up to the events, BBBS is in need of volunteers who can help solicit donations from businesses to collect silent auction items and baskets, as well as help with decorations, raffles, and other hands-on tasks. The day-of the event, BBBS is in need of volunteers to help the event run smoothly, working alongside our Staff to register individuals, sell raffle tickets, and set up/take down the event decorations.
OFFICE VOLUNTEERS: Have some free time? BBBS of McHenry County occassionally needs volunteers to come into the office to help with special projects, such as mailing appeals to community supporters. These opportunities are on a as-needed basis, so contact our office to be on a "notify" list. We will contact you one week prior to a project to see if you have time to help!
