The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Staffs concerts at either the Mint or our visitor center at 916 N. Peters St. per activity calendar. If at the Mint, arrives at least 15 minutes early and ensures that the donation box is outside the theatre on the 3rd floor of the Mint.
Ensure that park brochures and activity calendars are available on the table outside the Mint theatre.
Pick up a visitor hand counter from the ranger station on the first floor to take an accurate visitor count for the performance, and report the number of visitors to whoever is on at the ranger station desk after the show.
Welcome visitors arriving for the concert (we open the doors 15 minutes prior) and provide directional advice such. This includes directing folks to restrooms on the 2nd floor, advising if there are still chairs left, and letting people know who is performing.
Directing musicians to the backstage area if needed.
Finally, wear and NPS shirt, smile, and enjoy the music!
