Volunteer Hot Job List
Are you looking for ways to volunteer for your community?
MainStreet Piqua Needs Your Help.
If you have attended our events, you know they are fun and a vital part of our community. Volunteers are essential to the success of these events and are needed for committees, events and “on call” for the occasional office project. Whether you have a few hours to give each week, once a month or per event, we need you! At present the Hot Jobs list includes:
Volunteer Recruiter – Do you have a network of friends? We need one or two people to recruit volunteers for our events and committees. Sharing your passion of the organization and the fun you will have working at our events to friends, other organizations (in fact anyone who will listen!) are all the skills you need..
General Event Volunteers – Our 15+ days of events each year are staffed by our volunteers. If you would like to be called for all or pick your favorites, we will add your name to the volunteer list. The events include Downtown Piqua Chocolate Walk, Rock Piqua, Downtown Piqua Holiday Parade, Holiday Horse Parade, and our brand new Taste of Fall.
Site Set-up and Take Down – We need muscle! It’s not hard work, just physical. Get your exercise by setting up/taking down tables, chairs, barricades, loading/unloading supplies at a few of our events. Generally, it doesn’t involve a large time commitment – many hands make light work! Boy Scouts, athletic teams, students needing community hours – we need you!
