Become a Captain

Got a group that would like to par­tic­i­pate? Become a Cap­tain! Cap­tains are the key point peo­ple at each cor­po­ra­tion, church, fam­i­ly, or com­mu­ni­ty group who vol­un­teer to orga­nize Adopt a Fam­i­ly with their group. These vol­un­teers are respon­si­ble for recruit­ing indi­vid­u­als to adopt clients (usu­al­ly done through a dis­play). Cap­tains work direct­ly with KYC staff to pro­mote the pro­gram with their group. Cap­tains are respon­si­ble for either deliv­er­ing col­lect­ed gifts to KYC by Decem­ber 7, 2018 or work­ing with KYC staff to sched­ule a pick­up. Here’s what you’ll do as a Captain:

  • Email us to let us know you’d like to par­tic­i­pate! Con­tact us at email@​kennethyoung.​org.
  • Tell us how many gifts your group will give. 
  • Each gift totals $25 to $50. KYC will pro­vide you with as many client wish list tags as you request.
  • Make tags avail­able to your friends and cowork­ers who would like to pur­chase gifts.
  • Col­lect the gifts. Gifts are request­ed to be wrapped in gift bags.
  • Bring gifts to KYC’s Elk Grove Vil­lage Office.
