Community Service Opportunities
Five Cities Youth Baseball League: Volunteer opportunities offered on the website. We are a 501.3C organization and have shifts in the snack bar that count for community service hours. Shifts are typically 2 hours, but we can do longer if needed. It's basic food service/cash handling during little league games in Pismo at the Frady Lane sports complex. Let me know if we can get listed for the summer tournament season. We have a brief fall season and a busy spring program. A few of our volunteers have been gromAG high already, we just didn't know we could advertise until now. There will also be a need for volunteers to do field prep and maintenance for the beginning of the season. We can arrange if someone doesn't want snack shack hours. You can contact Marie Bussacco at firstname.lastname@example.org
