As part of United Way's Fun in the Sun program, we offer an hour-long volunteer opportunity for community members called "Lunch Bunch." Lunch Bunch gives volunteers an opportunity to play games and interact with students in the program, fostering positive adult engagement for the kids and giving volunteers the opportunity to mentor students and share about their lives and career.

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, in 2021 we've adapted our typical opportunity into a Lunch Bunch Playground Supervisor volunteer opportunity. Volunteers will not eat lunch with students, but rather interact with and monitor students during their lunch recess time. With United Way program staff support, volunteers will help supervise groups of 12 students and lead safe, social distanced playground activities.
