Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Bolingbrook Pride has a strong focus on family inclusion and teen acceptance. We strive to show that inclusion of the LGBT+ community is as simple as understanding our similarities and celebrating what makes us unique. Because we strive for inclusion, our events are always open to the public and we encourage attendance by people from all walks of life. We aim to partner with service and support organizations, businesses, and individuals who support the LGBT+ community. We are seeking vendors, sponsors, and volunteers for the picnic as well as new members of our organization to lead fundraising and marketing efforts as well as being involved in overall planning and directing future efforts for Bolingbrook Pride.
Our organization was formed as a way for the LGBT community to feel welcome, and be accepted. Our first event, Bolingbrook Pride Picnic and Puppies, was put together last year in eight short weeks. Bolingbrook mayor, Roger Claar, among other politicians, came out despite the possibility of rain to greet people, and show support. We had a shoestring budget, but lots of good people to help us.
This year, the event is bigger, and we need more volunteers to help everyone have an even better event.
