Volunteers and Halloween

With Halloween coming up as the next big event, little special things can be done for this holiday that help to show your appreciation for your volunteers. A big party is one thing, but small things can also help.

Treat Time

Little treats like candy corn or trick or treat packaged goodies will be most welcome by your volunteers. Even special things like a basket of apples makes a nice, yet inexpensive way to celebrate the holiday. You might want to try something like a basket full of candy treats, decked out in proper Halloween decor. If you aren’t talented at creating your own, or don’t have the time, try this one.

Cover the Whole Week

This year, Halloween falls on a Thursday. You can start on Friday, the 25th of October and do a little something special every day for the week of Halloween. That way you can make sure to say thanks to all your volunteers even if they aren’t working for you on Halloween day. Certainly make sure to get each volunteer involved in the appreciation event where you can.

Don’t forget to encourage costumes, if your organization can allow it. If possible, provide a time to reward your volunteers for the extra effort they may put into their work. Certainly, those organizations that assist people can benefit from costumes at more times in the year.

Remember Party Planning

If you are thinking of a costume party to thank your volunteers, it’s time to get going with your planning. More helpful tips can be found at Planning for Fall Holidays.

So make use of this special holiday to show your volunteers how much they are appreciated, whether it’s something as small as a candy dish set out just for the occasion or a big costume ball.

    I love the idea of a week’s worth of small treats leading up to Halloween. We do sometimes forget how much a small gift or gesture can mean to a volunteer!
