  • Distribute Earth Day T-shirts
  • Help out with the Clothing Swap and Office Supply Exchange
  • And much more!

There are 12 activities to choose from. No prior experience is required. You can volunteer for one hour, all day, or anything in between. All volunteers receive a free Earth Day T-shirt. Help us make the 2016 Earth Day Festival the biggest and best one yet!

Volunteer Activities:

Activity Description
Booth Assistant Assist exhibitors as they arrive and set up. Help exhibitors carry display items to their assigned tables.
Clothing Swap Help out at the clothing swap with folding and hanging clothes.
Deconstructed Maze Assist at one of four green trivia stations. As Earth Day participants complete each station, they will collect stamps that they can trade for an Earth Day T-shirt.
Earth Day Set Up Help set up tables and chairs for our 70 exhibitors, and put up directional signs.
Information Booth Answer questions and give visitors information to find their way around the Earth Day Celebration. You will have the resources you need such as a map and a list of events, locations and times.
Mascot Assistant Help our mascots (such as Captain Planet) with the things they need during the event, such as getting water and lunch.
No Preference At the Earth Day Festival, there are always activities that need extra volunteers. If you are willing to help out wherever you are needed most, choose the "No Preference" option.
Office Supply Exchange Anyone with a BuzzCard is welcome to come into the office supply exchange area and take as many office supplies as they would like, for free. You will help set up the available office supplies neatly on the tables and check to make sure people who come in have their BuzzCard.
Popcorn Make popcorn (instructions will be provided) and give out free organic popcorn to Earth Day participants.
Shoot the Shoes "Shoot the Shoes" is a fun way to recycle old athletic shoes. People donate their shoes and can shoot them through a basketball hoop that will be set up at the event. Volunteers will assist people who are donating shoes, cheer them on as they "shoot the shoes", and keep a count of the donated shoes.
Stage Assistant Help out with stage logistics, such as audio and stage set up for the bands, pick up lunches for the performers, and run other errands, as needed, for the stage manager.
T-Shirt Distribution Give out free T-shirts to people who have collected all four stamps in the Earth Day Deconstructed Maze.
