Since it began in 2002, Festival of Children has graciously extended the opportunity for MOMS Orange County to be a charity exhibited at the event, held at South Coast Plaza in Cost Mesa.  Each charity is given a booth, which giives us greater visibility and the chance to introduce MOMS Orange County to the many people who frequent South Coast Plaza .

Shifts are TWO hours each (12-2pm or 2-4pm) each weekend in the month of September.  Volunteer Duties consist of: Tabling the booth during your shift; sharing about MOMS Orange County (you’ll be given a fact sheet); and managing the Information sign-in and brochures.  All volunteers must be at least 16 years old.  Anyone younger than 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.

This is a fun volunteer opportunity which allows you to share about MOMS Orange County and join the Festival of Children festivities.  South Coast Plaza is abuzz with children and families during the weekend and the festive air makes the time pass quickly!  There are also an array of arts & crafts and performances during the day, so it’s a one-stop fun-filled day.  Grab a friend and volunteer!

Please contact Julie at or 714-352-3428 if you are interested in volunteering or have questions.
