City of GI always needing volunteers—help out today
Grand Island, Neb. — The City of Grand Island is seeking volunteers to help maintain and build an even higher quality of life in Grand Island’s parks and recreational facilities and public library.
Through the Volunteer Program, residents have a variety of options and ways to volunteer, either as a group or as an individual, or on an ongoing basis or just one-time. No matter how often or in what way time is spent volunteering, one thing is certain, the community will be enhanced.
Individuals, families, students, businesses, and organizations have an opportunity to contribute time, talents, and resources to city parks and facilities and library resources.
Some of the Parks and Recreation volunteer opportunities include: coaching a youth sport, serving as a safety range officer, helping with special events, and adopting a park or trail. An area especially needing volunteer assistance is greenhouse related items. Volunteers responsibilities include transplanting seedlings, properly labeling transplants, inventorying transplants, assisting with decorative container or hanging baskets or even adopting a flower bed.
The library could use teen or adult volunteers to assist with such things as helping patrons locate requested items, assisting with or presenting programs for all ages, delivering outreach and homebound materials, shelving materials and helping with special events.
For more information about volunteer opportunities visit www.grand-island.com or call the Parks and Recreation office at 308-385-5444 ext. 290 or the library at 308-385-5333 and ask for Kim Mettenbrink or Elle Supencheck.
