flier-1.jpgThe City of West Palm Beach Department of Parks and Recreation is hosting 2 upcoming volunteer events, 2 of the largest and most fun of the year. Please take a look at the information below and see if you’d be able to join us. The sooner you can submit registration forms, the easier it will be for us to determine the supplies, tools and food needed for both events. We are looking for food sponsors for both events – if anyone has any contacts that might be interested in receiving some sponsorship information, please forward me a contact name, email address and phone number and I’ll take it from there!

Please pay particular attention to the directions on the Comcast Cares Day registration form. Comcast is the Presenting Sponsor and will be providing funds for tools and supplies based on the number of volunteers who participate. It’s important that we get an accurate head count. Volunteers ages 8+ may participate but those ages 8-15 must be accompanied by an adult.
