More Volunteer Days. We also have many opportunities that come up on a weekly basis. For example, if there is a drought, we’ll schedule a volunteer event to water trees and plants. If the weeds are taking over our beautiful gardens, we’ll ask for some weeders, or, if one of the playgrounds needs our attention, we’ll call a volunteer day to clean it up. Other tasks may include edging sidewalks, painting benches, picking up trash, and much, much more!
