Become a Captain
Got a group that would like to participate? Become a Captain! Captains are the key point people at each corporation, church, family, or community group who volunteer to organize Adopt a Family with their group. These volunteers are responsible for recruiting individuals to adopt clients (usually done through a display). Captains work directly with KYC staff to promote the program with their group. Captains are responsible for either delivering collected gifts to KYC by December 7, 2018 or working with KYC staff to schedule a pickup. Here’s what you’ll do as a Captain:
- Email us to let us know you’d like to participate! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Tell us how many gifts your group will give.
- Each gift totals $25 to $50. KYC will provide you with as many client wish list tags as you request.
- Make tags available to your friends and coworkers who would like to purchase gifts.
- Collect the gifts. Gifts are requested to be wrapped in gift bags.
- Bring gifts to KYC’s Elk Grove Village Office.
