1. August 18-19: 2018 Special Olympic's State Summer Classic
This is a bit of a drive (held in Colorado Springs), but will be incredibly rewarding and fun! Bring your kids and volunteer as a family, or if you are older than 16 you can volunteer alone. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Georgia David at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. August 17-18: 2018 Peach Fest
A 3-hour volunteer shift will get you a free festival pass for the day you worked! If you volunteer both Friday and Saturday you will receive a weekend pass. This is a great way to get involved in the community and help with admissions, volunteer gate, set-up and tear-down etc. Learn more about volunteering HERE or call 970-464-7458 for any questions.
