United Way, the Enmax Centre and the Lethbridge Hurricanes are excited to co-host the 2019 Hurricanes Home Opener Tailgate BBQ!  United Way is in search of volunteers to support the event in the following capacities:   2-3 Face-Painters - Will support the event through engaging with fans (primarily children/youth), painting faces/hands to cheer the Lethbridge Hurricanes in their first home game of the season. If desired, a set of simple designs can be determined for fans to choose from in order to maximize time. Supplies can be provided, or face-painters are welcome to use their own supplies for familiarity. Samples of previous work may be requested. 3-6 Game/Activity Supervisors - Will support the event by supervising family-friendly game and activity stations, or the poster-making station. Ensure that areas are kept tidy, supplies are organized, and any donations given in support of the event are secure. The tailgate party runs 4:00-7:00PM. Volunteers will all receive a brief orientation upon arrival. BBQ by Brown's Socialhouse will be on site, and volunteers are encouraged to enjoy a burger on us! For more information or to sign up, please contact Connolly at 403-327-1700 or email communications@lethbridgeunitedway.ca.

United Way’s Poverty Simulation is an interactive learning experience where people have the opportunity to see what life can be like for about 12% of Lethbridge residents living with low incomes. The kit is composed of various props and laminated pieces representing identification, personal possessions, money and more. There are envelopes for 26 different families and 20 volunteer stations. After each simulation, the pieces must be sorted and placed back into their original envelopes. Volunteers will help to first unpack the envelopes used in the previous simulation, sort kit pieces, alphabetize pieces when necessary, and finally re-pack envelopes according to the simulation master list. United Way staff will be available at all times and will assist with re-printing pieces as needed. This project can be worked on independently, or in small groups at any time between 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. The United Way office is located on the upper floor and is not wheelchair accessible. The United Way office IS accessible by public transit. Please contact Connolly at 403-327-1700 or together@lethbridgeunitedway.ca to volunteer for this project.

  At each home game of the Lethbridge Hurricanes 2019-2020 Regular Season, United Way will be at the Enmax Centre, hosting a raffle to raise funds to support essential community programs! Volunteers work in teams of two or three to assist with raffle ticket sales to fans along the concourse and in the stands. Ticket sales take place before the game and during the two intermissions. Admission to the game is covered for volunteers. It's a great way to support the community and catch some Hurricanes action at the same time! This season, we're encouraging volunteers to commit to three or more HOME games throughout the season. The 2019-2020 season runs Sept. 20 - March 20. Volunteers should be comfortable standing and walking for moderate periods of time. Some stairs may be involved. Cash handling and basic math skills for change-making are needed. AGLC permits minors under the age of 18 to sell raffle tickets. United Way encourages volunteers under the age of 18 to sign up with a familiar adult. Those interested should sign up by contacting Connolly at 403-327-1700 or together@lethbridgeunitedway.ca. Please view the Hurricanes Game Schedule for available dates where Lethbridge is the home team.
