Volunteers are an integral part of Rainbows United’s ability to provide services to children with special needs and their families. Because of the commitment of our volunteers, projects such as painting and staining, replacing carpet, laying sod, building a raised-bed garden, clearing a tree line, pruning and trimming trees, laying mulch, cleaning classrooms and organizing libraries, as well as interacting with our children in the classrooms and at Camp Woodchuck have brightened the lives of Rainbows’ staff, children and families. As our volunteers know, they are now officially “friends” of Rainbows’ children.
In the past several months, Rainbows has been honored to welcome corporate volunteers from Celebrity Cruises, Meritrust Credit Union, Enterprise, Cox Machine, Sunflower Bank, Fidelity Bank, Cochener Garvey, Commerce Bank, MidAmerican Credit Union, InfoSync and Capitol Federal. These volunteers gave in time, talents and treasures. They helped us complete projects that would not have been fiscally possible due to the amount of materials and man-power needed. They helped us raise funds at events and they created an Island Paradise Getaway for our campers. Best of all, they brought smiles to the faces of our children!
If your corporation would like to join the Rainbows’ family, and be the new friends of Rainbows’ children, please contact Melani Kliewer, Volunteer Coordinator, at 316.558.3422 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
