Volunteer to help at the Back to School Family Carnival

We are hosting an end of summer carnival for our Grace Haven adoptive families on Friday, August 9 from 5pm-8pm. We are seeking organizations to partner with us to make this year's carnival a huge success for our families. We have two ways you can partner with us. 

·     Financial Partnership: We are seeking donations for individual game booths. Each donated booth will list the company that sponsored the booth. We have booth's available for sponsorship at $100. Financially sponsoring a booth will provide all items needed for the game and prizes for each participant. Grace Haven is a 501C3 ministry and can provide your organization with a tax receipt for any donations received.

·     Volunteer Partnership: We would LOVE to have you join us as game booth volunteers. We have an INCREDIBLE opportunity to work with WalMart through their WalMart gives campaign this summer. WalMart is donating $10 for each hour you volunteer! We would love to partner with you to make this family carnival a success, have fun, and help raise funds for Grace Haven Ministry.

    • First, use the Sign Up Genius link to tell us which shifts you can work at our carnival.

    • Next, you have to let WalMart know you have supported Grace Haven Ministries through the gift of your time. You let WalMart know by registering through their GivePulse platform. Details on how to register and log the hours you volunteer are below.

Below are step by step instructions to register your volunteer time (these steps have to be completed in order for WalMart to track your hours and raise funds for Grace Haven.)

1.   Click this link:

2.   Click "Become a Member" at the top of the page next to the Grace Haven Logo. This is a necessary step for WalMart to track volunteer hours. 

3.   Fill out the information requested (or simply click sign up with Facebook or Google)

4.   Once you are registered and logged in, you need to click ADD IMPACT (the green button on the top right of the screen) and fill in the information about the hours you served.

5.    Once you submit your hours we will get a request to verify that you were here.

6.   You will get an email saying your impact was verified. Please log back in and click the "request volunteer matching" tab, which will have a little red alert box next to it. Check the box next to the number of volunteer hours verified and then click the BLUE button that says "REQUEST MATCH"

Thank you for helping make Grace Haven's Back to School Family Carnival a success!
