Looking for a way to give back? You can learn about volunteering in the City of Mesa and how to get involved at a Volunteer Recruitment Fair Wednesday, April 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Arizona Museum of Natural History, 53 N. Macdonald.
We will have volunteer opportunities from several City departments, including Mesa Police; Mesa Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities; Mesa Arts Center; Arizona Museum of Natural History; i.d.e.a. Museum and Mesa Neighborhood Outreach. It is a great way for residents from teens to seniors give back to their community, fulfill service hours and learn different City functions.
The Volunteer Recruitment Fair follows the City of Mesa's celebration of National Volunteer Week April 7-13. In 2018, more than 9,800 volunteers combined to donate 180,316 hours of service to the City providing a value of more than $4.4 million.
The City has an online system to search for volunteer opportunities based on area of interest, length of time commitment and more. You can access it at www.mesaaz.gov/volunteer.
One major event needing volunteers is the Arizona Celebration of Freedom Thursday, July 4. To register, visit www.azcelebrationoffreedom.org.
