The League’s Service Squad stays busy making a difference in the community by assisting with projects that only last 1-2 days, such as Art Museum of Southeast Texas’ Family Art Days, Beaumont Children’s Museum’s presentation with Stuffee, CASA’s Annual Kids Carnival, and Some Other Place’s Soup Kitchen.
The Squad volunteers at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas’ (“AMSET”) Family Arts Days, which are free and open to the public. They combine exploration of the exhibits, hands-on activities and storytelling.
The Squad assist the Beaumont Children’s Museum with Stuffee. In presentations with Stuffee they explain to children the importance of a healthy diet and exercise and teach them about the parts of the body (heart, lungs and stomach). The Committee also assists BCM by informing parents and children about the status of the museum and opportunities for them to become involved with the museum.
The Court Appointed Special Advocates of Southeast Texas, Inc. is a non-profit service organization that recruits, trains, and supervises a diverse group of community volunteers, appointed by the Courts, to advocate for abused and neglected children in the pursuit of safe, permanent homes. The Squad assists CASA by volunteering at their annual Kids Carnival, where children and their families served by CASA and volunteers come together to enjoy themselves in a day of Summer Fun. The Squad typically manages a game booth, such as the Balloon Dart Booth, and hand out treats and prizes to children.
Some Other Place is an ecumenical mission in urban ministry, where people of all faiths come together to provide services of all types to people who find themselves in emergency situations. The Some Other Place Soup Kitchen provides meals for the homeless and The Squad assists with preparing sack lunches on Saturdays. Volunteer hours are usually on the 1st, 4th and 5th Saturdays of the month from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.
