Organizers are looking for volunteers to fill various roles from indoor to outdoor shifts and will range from 2 to 4 hours in length.

“We’ve already started recruiting volunteers to help at each of the hubs,” said McIntyre. “There’s indoor and outdoor opportunities. We’re looking for people to be ambassadors, to keep an eye on the outdoor slides or the rinks to help [make] a fire in the fire pits.”
