As of the date of this post, there are 171 days until Christmas. While I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing Friday, let alone what my plans will be 171 days from now, the folks at the Johnson County Christmas Bureau are gearing up to help over 3200 families in need this holiday season.
And they have the most fun volunteer opportunity on the planet. The Christmas Bureau is partnering with the Kansas City Royals and needs 60 volunteers to sell raffle tickets during two upcoming Royals games. Volunteers receive a free Royals ticket, free parking, and a $10 food voucher - in addition to the satisfaction of helping an organization that helps others.
