Green Team Volunteer Opportunity: Tempe 4th of July

  • Tempe Beach Park 80 West Rio Salado Parkway Tempe, AZ, 85281 United States (map)

Celebrate America's Independence Day by volunteering at the Tempe Town Lake Festival, one of the largest Fourth of July celebrations in the Valley!  You'll get up close to the Valley's best fireworks display while playing an important role of bin-guarding, which consists of helping event attendees properly deposit their recycling into the correct bins.  The event will have several eco-stations where volunteers will help ensure that recyclables like plastic cups, soda bottles, cans and cardboard will be heading to the recycling facility instead of the landfill.

Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and a meal. Breaks will be provided along with plenty of water.  Volunteers will be located in shaded spots and provided seating.  There will be two volunteers at each station, so you can be paired up with a friend.  The shift begins at 4:30 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. An added bonus - volunteers will also be raising funds for the Local First Arizona Foundation as event organizers donate dollars to nonprofits that provide volunteers.
