Are you in the Chigao area? Want to do some volunteering for Camp? If so, read on.
From Dave Impey:
My part-time employer, L.L. Bean, offers non-profit organizations the chance to earn $500 by staffing a gift-wrapping table from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on certain days from Thanksgiving to Christmas. We have two Chicagoland opportunities in newly-opened stores in Skokie and South Barrington. In addition to earning a sizeable contribution for the Annual Fund Drive, it's a great PR opportunity!
The typical L.L. Bean shopper is a natural demographic for Manito-wish camper recruitment and we'll be allowed to post all sorts of Manito-wish materials. (And you'll be in an L.L. Bean store! Bring your Christmas list!) L.L. Bean recommends waves of 4-6 person teams to allow for interchangeable wrappers and spokespersons, so, ideally, I'd like to get commitments from at least 10 people for each store, dates to be determined very soon. They provide all the wrapping paper, ribbons, etc. We only need to do it one day, and weekend slots are filling up. Dec. 6th is already taken by another group for Skokie.
So, if you're a North Shore or Northwest Suburban friend of Manito-wish and would like to spend a day bragging about Camp to fellow outdoor enthusiasts while honing your wrapping skills, please contact me!
Contact us here at Camp if you're interested and we can get you Impey's contact info.
