The Cat in the Birthday Hat

Last week, we told you all about the Dr. Seuss B&N Bookfair. This week, Jumpstart needs your help to host a Dr. Seuss Birthday Party for preschool children.

Jump up, jump up, and get down at Dr. Seuss’ bday bash! Join Jumpstart at Pace as they host a Dr. Seuss Birthday Party for Jumpstart’s preschool children on Friday, March 9.

Volunteers are needed to help to make sure the Grinch stays away and the kids come out to play! If you think you can help out from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at least 20 volunteers are needed for door security, registration, staffing the activity tables, and acting as group guides for a small group of children, as well as set-up and clean-up!

If you or a friend is interested in volunteering, please send an email to jstartpace@gmail.com including the following:
