Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina: State Fair Parking

Each year at the North Carolina State Fair, Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina operates a parking deck where we collect $5 per car. We’re looking for volunteers to help us staff the parking deck! This is a fun volunteer opportunity and an easy way to help us raise money for wishes! (No previous volunteer experience with Make-A-Wish necessary.)

This year, we will be operating the parking deck on the weekends of October 14 through 15 and October 21 through 22. We need lots of volunteers to direct cars, greet patrons and collect money. Please check out our 2017 State Fair Sign Up to see if there’s a shift that works for you! We would love to have your help with this awesome event. Thank you so much for your consideration and support! Questions? Contact Julie Berry, Volunteer Coordinator atjberry@eastnc.wish.org or 919-821-7111 ext. 209.
