If you have a little extra time to give, you can make a big difference in the community this spring. By volunteering for your Charleston County Parks, you can have a great time working at fun events outdoors while earning fantastic rewards. The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to work at park special events and activities.
Benefits include meeting new people, trying new things, being involved with your community and even getting access to area parks and attractions for free.
Volunteers who complete 30 hours of service this year can earn an ID that grants access to CCPRC facilities. This ID will also allow admission into select Charleston attractions.
Volunteers are being recruited for a variety of events and duties including:
– Pet Fest 2014 (March 22-23)
– The Lowcountry Cajun Festival (April 6)
– The East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival (April 11-13)
– Where the Wild Things Run 5K (April 26)
Volunteers with CCPRC are not required to fulfill a minimum number of hours. All hours supporting the agency are greatly appreciated. Individuals who serve more than 30 hours by the end of June will receive a PRC Volunteer ID, which is good for one calendar year.
