Seeking student volunteers: Opportunity Day for Differently-Abled Persons

Students, you are  invited to participate in the 40th Knights of Columbus Opportunity Day, Sunday, September 18, from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Volunteer check-in starts at noon.)

In the early 1980’s, members of the Knights of Columbus Fr. Dejaco Council in Alexandria, KY, recognized the challenges families and caregivers of differently-abled persons faced both in providing enjoyable outings for their charges, or in finding time for their own self-care. The Knights established Opportunity Day to fulfill this need, at least for a day. Since then, hundreds of exceptional children and adults have participated in the event, which includes food and refreshments, games and activities, music, and meeting new people.

We are recruiting volunteers, ages 14-18 or adults, to assist with the afternoon, as companions or in helping with the various activities.

Please note the following registration deadlines: For volunteers: please register by Sunday September 11, 2022. Volunteers can register by mail, or electronically via email or online form: https://tinyurl.com/KofC-oppty22-volunteer
