Volunteer Opp: Help Kids Have Fun on Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching, and two local organizations need volunteers to help out with their kid-oriented Halloween festivities.

Thomas Jefferson Community Center needs 20 volunteers to help throw a Halloween party for “200 small ghosts and goblins.” The event it to be held from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30. Volunteers will lead activities like games, face painting and arts and crafts. Any interested, enthusiastic volunteer age 16 or older should contact Milada Weaver at 703-228-4730

In addition, the Arlington YMCA is looking for members of the Community Volunteer Network to help out with its haunted house, to be held at the Madison Community Center next Friday and Saturday.

“Volunteers will be helping spook-up the event by working the registration table, setting up, monitoring the kids, being activity leaders, and cleaning up after it’s over,” organizers say. “If you are looking to find your inner child this Halloween, this scare-tacular event with Arlington kids is for you.”

Anyone interested in volunteering at the haunted house should call the Community Volunteer Network at 703-228-1197 or email cvn.admin [at] gmail.com.
