St. Johns Volunteers! is seeking to identify individuals in St. Johns County who might enjoy single-day community service opportunities. Several of our nonprofit partner organizations are seeking volunteers to assist with upcoming special events. Special event volunteers make a difference in our community by enabling our local nonprofit organizations to produce and host large-scale fundraisers and community events. Without the help of event volunteers, hosting large scale events would not be possible for many local nonprofits. Special events are also a lot of fun – and a great way to meet new friends. Below are a few single-day event opportunities where volunteers are needed:
Empty Stocking Fund
Needs 7 volunteers to assist with guest check-in and registration at an evening event on September 8th: Cava Reception & Dinner, a Spanish Wine Festival Event, benefiting three local charities.
FOSAA Children’s Art Festival
Dozens of volunteers are needed to support this large-scale, family-friendly event at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on October 15th. This event features a variety of hands-on, interactive booths where children can experience music and the arts. Four shifts options are available: Morning, Afternoon, Full-day and Set-Up.
Seeking to enlist a large number of volunteers to support our upcoming Jail Break 5k “Escape from St. Augustine” to be held on October 28, 2017. There are many volunteer opportunities to help, including pre-race promotions, packet pick-up, race event day volunteers, water stops, registration, bike rodeo, finish line guards and more.

Our goal is to help you find a perfect match for your volunteer interests! Special event volunteerism is a great way to learn more about our local nonprofits and the services they provide to our community.
