Featured Volunteer Opportunities – May 2016

Party in the Park - hands

Rein in Sarcoma totally relies on great volunteers (you!) for our success. Here are some current volunteer opportunities for which we have a special need.

Party in the Park Work Groups

Do you know a group of friends, coworkers, family members, boy scout or girl scout troops that would be interested in volunteering at the Rein in Sarcoma Party in the Park fundraiser on Monday, July 25th? We particularly need volunteers to help load and unload the trucks for both set-up and tear-down of the event. We also need volunteers in many other areas including Registration, The Ring Toss (must be at least 21 years old), and the Children’s Arcade. Volunteers may sign up to work in 2-3 hour shifts.
