They need volunteers! Even if you're doing a menial task you know you're still helping out for a good cause.

Volunteer coordinator and all organizing staff were very kind and grateful to all volunteers. Event was coordinated well, making execution run smoothly. All involved were easily directed. I would definitely recommend volunteering for this organization.
