After a long, busy Halloween Haunted Forest in October, a volunteer group from The Retreat at St. Johns came out to help put away all of our decorations!
We are very thankful to Lauren Kruta and all the volunteers that came out with her – they made light work of a daunting task.
For those of you who don’t know, our Haunted Forest is an annual, two-weekend celebration that is filled with games, crafts, a “haunted” trail, and – of course – tigers, lions, and the rest of our residents! It takes months of planning by our volunteers to make sure everything works together seamlessly. Volunteer groups from around Jacksonville come together to work with our dedicated Catty Shack volunteer team to create our “haunted” trail, decorate under our big tent, and work the weekend. Often, though, the take-down of the Halloween event can be overlooked – so we feel lucky to have such a great group of people come out from The Retreat to make sure we had a little extra helping hand to put everything away!
If you have a volunteer group and would like to schedule a “volunteer day” with us, please contact us!
