Volunteers are needed for this event in order for it to be successful.  As a volunteer, you will man a table at one of our 23 Ice Cream Shop Partners.  There will be books and bookbags to gift to the kids.  Plus, you will be able to share our mission and collect donations from those coming to buy ice cream.  It will take over 150 volunteers to make our big day a success.   We ask for 2 people to work together, and 1 may be a child age 10 and above.   You don't have to be a current hospital volunteer to help at our big fundraiser.    After sign up on the following link, please go to Kateskart.org and pre-order your free T-shirt.
