Farmers Market Volunteer Opportunities
Dog lovers are needed to help with the pet adoption at the farmers markets. Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) is looking for people to go downtown for training to join their adoption team. Info: CACC website.
Work at the FoPP tent selling, t-shirts, passing out magnets and flyers, tracking number of attendees, answering questions as best you can, and greeting people from your neighborhood. Volunteer for all or part of the 10am - 2pm window. You can also help set up before and after the market. High school students can even earn community service hours and organizations (churches, schools, etc.) who volunteer will be able to have an information booth at the market.

Holiday Craft Fair and Tree Lighting
Friends of Portage Park will need lots of volunteers on hand to help welcome craft vendors, assist with set up, and manage crowd flow in several park buildings for our first craft fair. We will also need lots of help decorating, serving hot chocolate, and spreading holiday cheer at the tree lighting in the playground.
