Volunteer Alert

Some of you may want to give back to your community, but for various reasons don't want to do it with money. How about giving your time?

The Volunteer Center of Mid-Michigan is an agency that matches people with time with organizations and events that have a need. You can volunteer once or many times.

Each Wednesday during News 10 at 5, WILX will tell you where volunteers are needed. We call it our Volunteer Alert. Or you can go to the Volunteer Center's Web site at www.volunteerlansing.org for other opportunities.

This week's opportunities are:

Help the St. John's Mint Festival. Volunteers are needed for various three-hour shifts during the weekend to assist with the information booth and pass our surveys to festival visitors. To sign up woth this opportunity, please call Brenda at 989-224-7248

Child and Family Services will host its annual golf outing on Friday, August 15th for 8AM to 3PM. Volunteers will be provided breakfast, lunch and mid-afternoon dinner. This will be a fun event where volunteers are needed to staff contest holes, handout prizes and refreshments or serve as runners for other volunteers. To sign up for this event, please call Mary Reed at 882-4000, ext 126.
