Look, Field Day is fun for everyone — especially if you aren't having a stress-free childhood. Here's your chance to help.

Thanksgiving is for... kickball? Sure, why not. Kick off the T-Day holiday with the Salvation Army’s Sallie House, where kids in crisis get a safe house. The Body Electric will run a field day with 40 kids, and they need lots of volunteers to make it happen. All you have to do is be ready to help with field day activities, like games and races. And smile. There’s that.

There’s a short meeting on Monday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. at The BE to plan the day.
