We are excited to be celebrating our 32nd year raising funds for pediatric research for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. The 2017 Festival of Trees will take place November 18, through November 26 – at the newly remodeled Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, located at 15801 Michigan Ave., Dearborn. We sincerely hope you will consider being a volunteer for our beautiful benefit for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation.
Shifts are on a first come, first serve basis. All volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
A limited number of coat racks will be on site, we ask that you consider carrying your essentials in a fanny pack as we will not have an area for watching purses etc. Dress in holiday attire, and wear comfortable shoes as many positions require standing or walking. Unfortunately seating cannot be provided for your shift. Please note there is not a concession stand in the facility, and we do not provide meals. If you wish to bring a snack to consume before or after your shift, there are a limited amount of tables and chairs in the atrium of the event site. In addition, there are a large variety of restaurants in Dearborn.
This year we are also in need of Tree Fluffers to work on Monday, November 27th, and possibly Tuesday November 28th. This position, in coordination with our Tree Delivery Chairperson, will have volunteers driving in teams, following the tree delivery trucks to the various locals that trees are being delivered, and re-fluffing the trees. Please consider joining in this fun day. We would truly appreciate your assisting on this project!
We would greatly appreciate your email address, in order for us to save money by emailing you instead of mailing. Please provide on the form you return.
The success of Festival of Trees has always depended on the support of our volunteers. We could not do all that we do, without you!
