The beginning of October means candy infiltrates the thoughts, minds, and dreams of kids as Halloween draws near. As candy fills the shelves and kids’ stomachs, I started thinking… what if our volunteers were candy bars?
Snickers – The volunteer who is sweet but firm (and a little bit nutty).
Nerds – The volunteer who has their very own laminator at home and comes fully prepared (even with extra activities) every Sunday.
Three Musketeers – This adventurous volunteer is up for anything! This is the one you contact when you need someone to drink a strange concoction or perform a random feat of courage on stage.
Tootsie Pops (how many licks?) – Quiet and reserved at first, this patient volunteer sticks around for the long-haul.
Skittles – This volunteer can do everything, and their skills span the rainbow. You can put them in any position, and they’ll shine!
M&M’s – The classic, dependable volunteer you can always count on in a pinch.
Sour Patch Kids – You’re not too sure how well this volunteer will relate to kids at first, then they surprise you as the kids’ favorite leader.
Gummy Bears – The volunteer who’s still a kid at heart.
Hershey Bar – The simple, easy-going volunteer who doesn’t ask a lot of questions.
Kit Kat – You can delegate responsibilities to this volunteer, and they’ll give you a break from being in charge.
Jolly Rancher – The volunteer who serves happily behind the scenes. They don’t get much attention, but you’re so thankful they’re there.
Do you have a full bag of candy volunteers on your team? What candy volunteers would you add to this list?
