Dear Snowball Volunteer,
This announcement is being sent to those individuals who in past years signed up to serve as a volunteer for Snowball Express. Your willingness to serve the children of our Nation's Fallen Heroes makes you special. Thank you for serving in past years. I hope that you will sign up to volunteer again this year and
support the largest gathering in the world of children and families of our fallen military heroes.
We are ready to have you sign-up for this year's event. To sign-up simply click on the link to our new volunteer site.
This year our families will stay in Fort Worth and travel to events and venues in Fort Worth and Dallas. We plan to have volunteer opportunities in both areas.
I encourage everyone to sign up. Those volunteers around the country who show tremendous support at the airport send off ceremonies should sign up again. Volunteers who will be serving one or more days in DFW need to sign up. Also, individuals who are not able to devote a lot of time should sign up. You can devote a few short hours and have a tremendous impact on these children and families. One of the public efforts that is most meaningful to our children and families is the "walk of gratitude", where we invite the public to simply show up, line the streets, bring American flags and home made signs of support. This simple but powerful act shows these families that they have not been forgotten and the ultimate sacrifice of their hero will never be forgotten. If you sign-up you will be notified of these tribute events.
I am pleased to announce that we are launching a new volunteer database that will be much easier for you to use. This system will also allow us to assign volunteers more efficiently and communicate more effectively. This system has greater flexibility and will be much easier to expand as we grow.
Our new database requires that everyone re-register as a Snowball Express volunteer. We are unable to transfer data from our old system to the new database. We appreciate your understanding as we undergo this period of transition. Sign-up is very simple and will only take a few minutes.
We have also established a volunteer help desk e-mail system. If you have a question or require assistance, please address your question to the appropriate contact.
You will be able to access the first support e-mail address directly from the volunteer sign-up system. Please refer to the last page of the Help & How To Document that is linked below.
Sign-up or general questions e-mail:
Some of our volunteers may remember Michelle Carline and Kara Carline, our Volunteer Coordinators. Michelle and Kara can still be contacted with questions about background checks or specific volunteer assignment questions at: VolunteerCoordinator@snowballexpress.org
