As a 100% volunteer organization, volunteers are the heart and soul of Sweets Foundation. Our volunteers understand the need to help Palm Beach County’s Students and devote their time and energy to make our program a success. Sweets Foundation volunteers perform a variety of tasks including:
Board Members: The members of Sweets Foundation Board of Directors are all volunteers. Local business people and Palm Beach County citizens, they each play in role in shaping the programs and direction of the organization. Our Board members don’t just sit around a table. They actively work with the rest of our volunteers to ensure that we accomplish all we can.
School Ambassadors: Volunteers School Ambassadors do all of the outreach and follow-through for the schools we work with each year. From initial contact to shopping with the teachers and making sure that the children receive their supplies, these volunteers are there for each step of the process and are a key component to the success of the Beyond the Basics program.
Concession Sales: One of the ways that Sweets Foundation raises money for its programs is by staffing a concessions booth at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach. The venue provides product and we provide the manpower. Sweets receives a portion of the proceeds and all tips. The volunteers have a lot of fun while helping to raise a substantial amount of funds for Sweets.
