Positively Kids is always in need of people to assist us in our efforts to provide healthcare to medically fragile and/or developmentally delayed children and their families in Southern Nevada. From event set-up to clerical work, we can always use your help! Here are a few volunteer opportunities that are currently available.
Lucky Duck Family Festival – Duck Tagging
Duck tagging will take place on Friday, September 21,2018 at 5:00 pm at the Positively Kids parking lot located at 2480 E. Tompkins Ave. Volunteers will remove stickers from rubber ducks and place new stickers on the rubber ducks. There will be 5,000 ducks that will need to be tagged. We only anticipate the tagging lasting about an hour, but that will depend on the number of volunteers (record is 30 minutes). Volunteers will be provided drinks at the tagging.

Breakfast with Santa – Secret Santa
Throughout October and November individuals, organizations, and/or companies can participate as a Secret Santa by providing presents for our low-income, medically fragile, and/or developmentally delayed children and their families. Our families can always use clothing items of various sizes/ages, puzzles, coloring books, crayons, and other toys. Volunteers can also “adopt” a family and receive a list of specific items that the child and his/her family have requested. Positively Kids requests that all donations be delivered at the Tompkins Ave location by December 1st.
