Harvest Festival is a great opportunity to jump start your annual service hours. This huge event requires many volunteers and we need your help in order for it to be successful. Service hours are given for help setting up on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, working Thursday during the day, Friday and Saturday evening, Sunday clean-up, and Monday supply pick-up. Please sign up by September 30th. 

For more information on volunteer opportunities, please see this document: Harvest Festival Volunteers.

Please be aware that all volunteers must be VIRTUS APPROVED. Training can be completed online at www.virtusonline.org.
