One-Time Volunteer Events

Make an Impact in Your Community!

Many of our community partners put on events throughout the Phelps County area, and often need volunteers to help make their events successful!  These are one-time volunteer opportunities that may involve helping to set up for an event, sell concessions, advertise, or otherwise help the event be successful. 

If you are interested in volunteering for any of these events, please contact the community partner directly.
