2019 Day on the Farm Volunteer
What is Day on the Farm?
Day on the Farm is hosted by Society for disABILITIES and Jim & Patti Sanchez at Sanchez Farms. The Day on the Farm program introduces individuals with disabilities to do activities typically seen on a farm. Activities include, but are not limited to: horseback riding, hayrides, arts and crafts, a petting zoo & more. At the end of the day, there will be a Bar-B-Que cook out. Lunch is free to all volunteers.

The June 22nd, 2019 Day on the Farm is for participants with diverse abilities, ages of 4 and above. Each participant must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. The day will begin at 10:00AM and will conclude after lunch, around 1:00PM. Volunteers are expected to arrive at 8:30AM for orientation and set up. There will be a “buddy” assigned to each participant. He or she will accompany the participant throughout the day to assist the child at each station. Experienced horse handlers will be leading the horses for the riding sessions. All volunteers 18 and over must pass a background check.

What does the Day on the Farm program need?
We need volunteers that are willing to assist children and young adults with diverse abilities, to enjoy the Day on the Farm. Each volunteer will be assigned to one participant for the day or at a craft or activity station. Volunteers will assist participants, along with the participant’s parent/caregiver and family in various activities.

How much time is involved?
Volunteers must be available from 8:30AM to 2:00PM. Between 9:00-10:00AM, volunteers will receive orientation for the day and help with set up. It’s important to be on time so we can provide instructions & assign volunteers to their duties for the day. Please be prepared to stay and help with tear down & cleanup.

What do I bring?
Dress for a day on the ranch, a big smile and a heart for children. We will provide bandanas for all volunteers.
