Opportunities to Serve

East Valley Athletes for Christ is an organization that is dependent on volunteer help from participating families.  Below is a list of service opportunities and brief descriptions of each.  If you would like to help please contact any one of the Board Members listed on the “EVAC Board of Directors” link on the new website.

EVAC School Year Kick-Off Event

 

One new idea received by the Board this year has been to schedule a kick-off event for all EVAC families during the month of September or Early October prior to the start of basketball season.  Planning and coordination of this event would include identification of event location, date & time so as not to conflict with volleyball and football schedules, event advertising (e-mail blasts through Athletic Director, Facebook, flyers, etc.),  coordination of food in a potluck format, follow-up reminders, and creation of an agenda for the event itself, if any.  

Specific Need: None at this time.  Tracy Miller and Heidi Landis have volunteered to coordinate this year’s event.
