The Ollie Hinkle Heart Foundation is looking for 20 student volunteers for an upcoming event at the Magic House. Volunteers will help kids with congenital heart defects have fun at the Magic House while their parents attend educational forums. These kids rarely, if ever, get to go to the Magic House because of their conditions so they are all super excited to have the whole place to themselves! Nurses will be there as well just in case. Want to volunteer? See Ms. Verstraete in the counseling center.
