Pride in bettering the Plymouth community once again led to a record-breaking number of volunteers in 2011. Last year more than 1,800 of you donated more than 27,000 hours of your personal time for a variety of causes. “The city is very grateful for volunteers who work to make sure Plymouth is a nice place,” says Jackie Maas, volunteer coordinator for the city.
Opportunities are posted on the city’s website (plymouthmn.gov), inside Plymouth News, the city’s bi-monthly city newsletter, and in the parks and recreation seasonal guide. Individuals looking to volunteer should fill out the volunteer application, and either mail it in or submit it online. After the application is received Maas checks references and interviews each applicant to determine what type of volunteer opportunities he or she might most enjoy.
This summer, keep the record-breaking volunteer movement alive; volunteers are needed to help with the Adopt-a-Park clean-ups, weed playgrounds and landscape around city buildings. 763.509.5230; email@example.com
