Fairmont Needs Volunteers for Jump Rope for Heart Event

Fairmont School is looking for volunteers who are available to help the Fairmont kids (and gym teachers) with their “Jump Rope for Heart” event next Wednesday, February 7th. It goes from 8:20 am to 2:20 pm. 

We love it that the Fairmont staff is including us in these events! There will be a sign up sheet on Sunday, or you can just email Pastor Dana (danalobrien@gmail.com ) if you can help.

You are invited to help in either of two ways:

  1. Helpers are needed during the event to monitor kids, hand out snacks and jump with the kids. (Parents will also be helping so this is a great opportunity to get to know some of the families.) (Dana will be helping from about 8 to 10:30.)
  2. Healthy snacks are needed for the jumpers. Those can be brought to COG (or my house at 16759 West Sioux in Lockport) anytime before Wednesday morning at 7:30), or you can take them yourself if you’re going to help at the event.) 

SNACKS REQUESTED (NO PEANUTS OR PEANUT BUTTER SNACKS, PLEASE!)
Only the following snacks are allowed for this event: 

  • Raw Vegetable Sticks/slices (individually wrapped if possible)
  • Fresh fruit slices (individually wrapped if possible)
  • Dried fruits such as raisins, cranberries, or apples
  • Single serving applesauce
  • Single serving fruit cups
  • Pretzels (individual bags if possible)
  • Reduced Fat Crackers (individual bags if possible)
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Granola Bars WITHOUT PEANUT BUTTER
