The block party will be on October 18 from 2pm-6pm. Volunteers are needed to: set up, run a face painting booth, assist with inflatables, sell raffle tickets, and various activities to help with their fundraising efforts.

This is a great way to earn service hours while helping a close community, not to mention having a great time!
