This just in: Volunteers needed for 4th of July fireworks event downtown

This dispatch was added by one of our Nonprofit Neighbors. It does not represent the editorial voice of The Rapidian or Community Media Center.

Underwriting support from:

Please join the Volunteer Center in supporting Grand Rapids' Fourth of July fireworks at Ah-Nab-Awen Park along the Grand River.  Lots of volunteer help is needed to make the event a success!

Volunteer duties are simple and you can even bring your family.  You will be promoting a positive environment while performing duties such as keeping the crowd in safe areas, answering questions, and watching out for children.  Parking passes will be provided, along with free food and all the water needed to stay hydrated on a summer evening.  Volunteers as young as 16 years old are welcome.

There are 2 different volunteer shifts to choose from:

                 Shift 1: 5pm-8pm

                 Shift 2: 8pm-11pm

This is a great way to support a fabulous family-friendly event in Grand Rapids.  Plus, you'll enjoy live music, an awesome fireworks dislay, and good local food.

Your help is needed!  Visit our Volunteer Solutions posting to sign up today.

Please sign up by Friday, June 25th to help us ensure we gather enough volunteers.
