Volunteers Needed for the Chula Vista Veterans Home Holiday Party

Southwestern College’s Student Veteran Organization (SVO) received an urgent request from the Volunteer Director of California Veterans Home of Chula Vista.

California Veterans Home of Chula Vista is the largest nursing home for our nation’s elderly Veterans with nearly 169 residents. This is their biggest party at the Veterans Home and one that residents and their guests look forward to every year and they always need assistance from volunteers during the entire day. However, due to the loss of VA Work Study Students (mostly Southwestern College students), they are extremely short staffed this year to support their annual Resident Holiday Party.

SVO is extending this invitation campus wide to meet their needs. I was informed they need about 100 volunteers to make this Holiday Party a success for the residents.

The date of the Holiday Party is Thursday, December 12, 2013 from about 5:30pm -8:30pm

Location: 700 East Naples Ct, Chula Vista, CA 91911

Job listing includes: (# volunteers needed)

Door Greeters (4-6)
Door Runners (4-6)
Food Servers (20)
Food Wait Staff (50)
Beverage Wait Staff (50)
Photographer (1-3)
Pre-party set up (40)
Post Party tear down (40)

You may volunteer for more than one job (i.e. Pre-party set up & food waiter or perhaps food server & tear down)

If you would like to volunteer (no minors!), please email William (Jim) Jones (wjones@swccd.edu) and state the job(s) you are interested in but please be flexible if your desired positioned has been filled.

Thank you!
