Primarily, I volunteer bringing balloon twisting to children in Duval, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns, and Union counties.
My volunteer list currently includes:
. Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America
. Child Guidance Center, Jacksonville
. Clay County Public Libraries
. Dinsmore Baptist Church
. Dinsmore Elementary School, Duval County Public Schools
. Jacksonville Public Libraries
. Libraries in the New River Library Cooperative
. R. V. Daniels Elementary School, Duval County Public Schools
. Seminole Boosters / WithLove Charity, Inc.
I’m very selective where I volunteer as I only have so much time available even though I’m retired.
When time permits, I twist at events and restaurants. Being a retired CPA, having a volunteer specialty that funds itself is, well, even more fun!
If you are seeking a balloon artist for a birthday party, I recommend Nikolay “Niko” Zhukov (phone 904.982.7909) or Justin Reams. Both are great artists that I’d be happy to have around my own children or grandchildren.
