Cluster Tutoring is looking for students, tutors, and parents to help make donuts at the Oak Park Farmers’ Market on Saturday, June 27. The Farmers’ Market is at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 460 Lake Street in Oak Park. The program can earn $1,000 for just one day of work.
Public health precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be in place, including social distancing, the use of PPE, and an age limit on volunteers. No one under the age of 10 will be allowed to help. Although the Farmers’ Market is set up a little differently this year, donut-makers will still work in the Pilgrim Church basement.
We are looking for Cluster volunteers to work one of several shifts. The first shifts start at 3:30 a.m., and the last shifts end about 1:30. Each donut shift is roughly 2 1/2 to 3 hours long. We need help in all areas of the donut-making process: Frying, boxing, coating donuts with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar, donut-running, and clean-up.
The benefits include free donuts as well as the knowledge that you’re helping to raise money for a program you support. Plus, it’s a lot of fun — ask any donut volunteer.
Students as well as adults are welcome to help. Past helpers have included everyone from students and their families to tutors to Cluster board members.
If you’re out of town that Saturday or are not able to help out as a donut volunteer, you can still help by spreading the word to friends, family, and neighbors to buy Farmers’ Market donuts on June 24. The sale of all donuts helps raise money for Cluster.
