be part of something bigger than yourself
On Saturday September 15, 2018, there is a LOT you can do.
Last fall, during the inaugural year of GO Pulaski County, we accomplished 13 projects with over 170 participants. These projects ranged from three to six hours and included building benches, laying mulch, staining picnic tables, cleaning out area creek beds, as well as many others. Volunteers not only helped on site with these projects, they also served in a variety of ways behind the scenes to help register folks, distribute shirts, snacks, drinks, and even donate financially to provide project resources.
This year, we have a goal to at least double the number of projects, which means we will need twice as many volunteers.
Would you consider helping? There are roles and opportunities for people of all ages and skill sets.
- We want people that are willing to solicit donations of goods and services.
- We want people that know how to safely use a saw and other tools.
- We want people who can check lists.
- We want special skills such as working with electricity.
- We want people that will just volunteer their time and energy.
- All ages are welcome. Children under 12 years of age must be supervised by a parent or guardian
We are in the process of confirming our 2017 GOPC projects. When you register for the event, we will do our best to pair you to a job that you have requested. If you do not request a specific job, we will assign you to a project based on where we have need. Project leaders will be responsible for providing any tools and materials necessary to accomplish their project. Once you are assigned, you will be contacted by the project leader for further specific details and logistics.
GO Pulaski County is a great opportunity to invest in our community while meeting new people, developing new skills, and being a part of something bigger than yourself. It may only be a one day event, but the results last much longer.
Volunteer registration is NOW OPEN! Free GO PC T-shirts will be provided to anyone who registers before September 1st (shirts will be available for $7 as long as supplies last).
Please indicate on your registration if you have an allergy or need special accommodation. If you have further questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Most inquiries will be handled within 24 hours.
Bring the kids! Bring the family! Bring the friends! We hope to see you on September 23!15
