Volunteer Opportunities: Sunshine Kids


For the past two years we have not been able to host the Sunshine Kids due to the pandemic. Thankfully, they will be here for The Texas Hill Country Adventure June 6th – 12th . At our Alumni meeting in February, Lieutenant Dennis Gutierrez explained the activities that are being scheduled and the dollar amount the HCCSAAA will be contributing. Therefore, the funds raised at both fundraisers shown below will be used for the Sunshine Kids in June.

On Thursday, April 28th we will be doing either a cheeseburger plate or pasta plate along with a 50/50 raffle at the Government Center. At the present time, we are working on our cost to see which one will bring us the most profit. As we have done in past years, we will have seating for those who have gone through the serving line. In addition, we will be delivering to various businesses who have placed orders with us. Last year we delivered 116 cheeseburger plates to 11 businesses. Total cheeseburger plates sold was 300 in San Marcos.

On Wednesday, May 11th at the VFW in Wimberley, we will be doing a cheeseburger plate. As we did last year, we will be delivering to various businesses who have placed orders. Last year we delivered 163 cheeseburger plates to 19 businesses. Total cheeseburger plates sold was 240 in Wimberley.

Our goal this year is to sell 700 plates between these two fundraisers, and if we meet that goal we should net a profit of $5,000. Both events are going to be heavily promoted and we feel we can generate another $1,000 in donations. Needless to say, none of this is going to be possible without your support. Before we finalize everything and start promoting both fundraisers we will need to know if we have enough volunteers. We are going to need volunteers to do various tasks from 9am to 2pm at each fundraiser. We are going to need 8 people to help set-up and serve. In addition, we are going to need 5 people to make deliveries.

Both of these fundraisers are extremely important this year and your wonderful support is greatly appreciated. If you can volunteer, please reply to this email and let me know if you can work either event or both. I would appreciate having your reply no later than March 15th so an announcement can be made at our March 16th Alumni meeting as to whether we have enough volunteers for each fundraising event.

On behalf of the Sunshine Kids, HCCSAAA and HCSO thank you.
