Volunteering at the Apple Festival

Registration is now OPEN for 2017 Apple Festival Volunteers!

On Saturday and Sunday, October 7 and 8, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Mill Neck Family of Organizations will host its annual APPLE FESTIVAL. Thousands of Long Island families will return to our beautiful campus to enjoy this autumn tradition!

What’s quite amazing is the Festival is run entirely by faithful volunteers. Without the time and talents of volunteer workers, this event would never be possible. Volunteers are the lifeblood, and from its inception, the most enthusiastic and supportive volunteers have been our school’s parents, the parents of former students, members of service organizations and friends of Mill Neck Manor.

If another family member or friend would also like to volunteer, please copy the form, have them fill it out and mail it back, or simply have him/her register online. Volunteers will receive 5 food tickets for four hours of service and 10 food tickets for a full day of service. Confirmation letters, with assignment details, will be mailed to volunteers at the end of September. Any questions about volunteering can be directed to Samantha Lordi at (516) 628-4239 or events@millneck.org.

On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, we will be hosting the Apple Festival “Kick-Off” Breakfast for 2017 volunteers from 9 am to 11 a.m. in the Deaf Education Center. The breakfast gives us an opportunity to recognize our long-time volunteers and orientate our new ones. Please indicate on the volunteer form (below) if you plan to attend the “Kick-Off” Breakfast.

Since our first official Festival in 1961, proceeds raised from the event have been used to support our programs and services for people who are Deaf or who have other special communication needs.

We look forward to your participation in this year’s Apple Festival. Thank you for helping to make this event possible. Please be sure to “like” the Mill Neck Family of Organizations Facebook page!

PLEASE NOTE: If you work four hours, you will receive 5 food tickets to use at the Festival.  If you work all day, you will receive 10 food tickets. You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. 


Application deadline is Friday, Sept. 8, 2017.
