Special Needs Resource Expo

Make your time count! Volunteers needed!

Your help is needed! 
The Special Needs Resource Expo is a free event which provides opportunities for parents and professionals to connect and discover many of the wonderful resources available in Alachua County and surrounding areas.

We are looking for positive individuals to help with vendor sign-in and set-up (E.g. assistance with carrying tables, chairs, and finding designated set up area,) hanging banners, directing attendees, roaming and observing inside and out during the event to assist people and pick up trash as needed.  After the event we will need volunteers to assist with break-down of booths, assist vendors in returning to their vehicles, pulling down banners and signs and storing them for future use, as well as trash and general clean up inside and out.

We will sign your volunteer forms! Bring your volunteer credit forms or let us know prior to the event and we will provide forms for you.  If you need a form, please make a note in the comments section provided when signing up.  

We look forward to hearing from you!!
