Did you know it nearly 1,000 volunteer hours to staff Celebrate! West Hartford? This great community event relies on folks to step-up and give back. There are jobs for everyone; there are jobs for folks who like to greet people and answer questions, there are jobs for people who like to be near the stage and listen to the bands, there are even jobs for people who like to get up early in the morning!
Give an hour (or two or ten!) to help make this great community event a success. Volunteer opportunities include:
May & Early June
Distribute posters and signage. Assist with clerical tasks and organizing supplies in office.
