Be at the Jacobson Center at 2:30 PM. Floaters need to be flexible and willing to help in any area, from parking to an egg hunt. Or helping serve food or hauling a garbage bag. You'll be the extra man-power to get tasks done and answer questions as you float throughout the event.
Beeping Egg Hunt
Be at the Jacobson Center at 2:30 PM. You'll be responsible for turning on and setting out the beeping eggs. These eggs need to be turned on only moments before the hunt so they don't distract the vision impaired egg hunters. Some hunters might need help, others need wide berth, so your judgment will help you during the event.
Quiet Egg Hunt
Be at the Jacobson Center at 2:30 PM. Volunteers for this egg hunt will help setup the eggs and get the egg hunters ready and in the right area. The quiet egg hunt will be further away from the other activities, and distractions.

Be at the Jacobson Center at 2:30 PM. Volunteers will set out the magnetic eggs, and help run the hunt. We'll also need people to hand out the magnetic poles and swap the magnetic eggs for prize filled eggs.
Be at the Jacobson Center at 2:30 PM. At the Special Egg Event there are lots of activities for the children and families to do before or after their egg hunt.

Be at the Jacobson Center at 2:30 PM. Are you an experienced nurse or care provider? Have you helped with children who have special needs? We need a couple people with the right skills to help ensure that we have a safe environment.
