Thank you for your interest in our Rockin' 4 Relief 2017 event in Cape Girardeau, MO! Our event is being held on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21ST, 2017.
Rockin' 4 Relief is a nonprofit organization that raises money for families of police officers, firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics who were killed in the line of duty. Twice a year, we host a "rock-a-thon" where we send volunteers to different locations around the city to rock in rocking chairs for 10 hours straight and collect money from the customers who walk by. Since 2009, we've raised nearly $133,000 including a $13,000 donation from Ms. Oprah Winfrey.
Prior to the event, we will have THREE preparation meetings for our volunteers that are CRUCIAL to the success of our event. The dates and times for these meetings are Monday, September 25th, Thursday, October 12th, and Wednesday, October 18th at the Osage Center in Cape Girardeau from 7-8pm.
If you are volunteering as a large group (10+), we can work something out where I can come to you and give you all of the information separately so we do not need every person to show up to every single meeting.
IF you are able to attend all 3 meetings and the entire day on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21st, 2017, then we can reward you with 20 community service hours.
If you cannot attend a meeting, just let me know ahead of time and I will send you the information you missed via e-mail.
Important notices:*Both teenagers and adults are needed! Each location requires someone 18 years or older at every location at all times.*Only one volunteer per location will actually be rocking in the rocking chair, the rest will be passing out fliers and talking to people*All information submitted on this form will be kept private.*If you cannot attend weeknight meetings, please still feel free to sign up and we can work something out but PLEASE try your best to attend so everyone is on the same page
With the hard summer for law enforcement this year, we hope this will be one of our BEST events yet.
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, feel free to reach out to Jennifer Rubin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANK YOU for your interest in Rockin' 4 Relief and we are looking forward to having you!
