Thank you for supporting Wellspring Family Services and families in our community. This fair will be focused on celebrating families, and will offer items and services to help families regain housing stability.

Please note that all volunteers must be signed up for a specific role and shift prior to June 3rd. We will not be able to accommodate any additional volunteers after this date. Some roles may require background checks. The fair will be held inside and outside, so please dress appropriately for the weather, and wear comfortable shoes. You are also welcome to bring water, beverages, and snacks to stay comfortable and safe during your shift.

When you arrive for your volunteer shift, please check in with Thom. If you have a Wellspring shirt, please wear it. If not, please let us know your size and we will provide one. If this is your first time volunteering with Wellspring, you will need to complete an application. Some volunteer roles may require a background check or additional training.
