Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Assistance is needed making up the Luminaria Bags and for setting the bags out and lighting them at the event. This is a one time event, no advance training needed. Extra volunteers are welcome so bring a friend, many hands make for lighter work.
We are going to have a work party to prepare the luminary bags on December 14th from 10 am -12 pm. Once we get carts full, we will move the bags over to the porches for storage. On Sunday December 16th, (Event Date) we will have another work party to set the bags out and start lighting them at 3 pm. (Weather permitting.) If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Site Volunteer Coordinator Margo Carlen at margo.carlen@illinois.gov
