Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario has partnered with St. Laurent Shopping Center to host a Charity Coat Check from Nov 18 - Dec 24, 2108. We are looking for volunteers to help us cover all the shifts required. All shifts are a maximum of 4 hrs.
The coat check is located near Toys R Us across from the Customer Relations Desk. The coat check requires the person to donate $2.00 to store their coat (coats only) while they are shopping in a secure area. We are also encouraging guests to take a star from our Holiday Star of Wishes Tree. Guests choose a star to take home with them and we encourage them to go online to make a donation to Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. All funds raised form the coat check will go towards granting local wishes this holiday season.
We have many shifts still available for this great opportunity. To participate we ask that the volunteers please click on the doodle link, enter their name and select the shifts they wish to cover. After, we ask that they send an email to Janet-lee Ferris at email@example.com so that she can follow up with them via email in case there are any changes to their shift(s).
