Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Hometown Christmas Parade. Your support is critical to the success of the event and is very much appreciated.

NOTE: All volunteers will be on their feet and in the sun for the duration of the shift, please be prepared. Also note that many positions require walking the mile-long parade route. To volunteer you must be 13 years old or older; some positions must be 18 years or older. Volunteer check-in tables will be set up at the Staging and Destaging areas. While you may make a request to work with other individuals, we cannot guarantee who you will be assigned with as we have many individuals we are working with for this event.

We will do our best to accommodate your request. You will be contacted as the event gets closer to confirm your position and provide additional details on parking, where to go and when to arrive.

The volunteer meeting will take place on Wednesday, December 6th at 6:30PM at Glencroft (8611 N 67th Ave, Glendale, AZ 85302). Pizza will be served.
