Volunteer Opportunities for Stand UP!

Stand Up! For the Bay is coming! It’s looking to be an excellent event this year! We’re partnering up with South Slough, which will likely swell our numbers! Therefore, we’re going to need a bit more manpower than we’ve had in the past. I’ve made a list of all the jobs we need filling. In general, these are broken up into 2 hour shifts, with a couple 3 hour shifts (if I get enough volunteers I can shorten these).

Check out the list and let us know if you can fill any of the shifts. Also, feel free to pass this on to anyone you may feel would be interested in volunteering.

Please contact the volunteer coordinator if you can help with any of these.
