Volunteers are needed and welcome to help at the Veterans Museum, at fundraising events in San Eli, and at our Annual Veterans Day Parade.
The volunteers would assist museum visitors and help with some light maintenance. During events, volunteers would help set up the Veterans' booths, handle sales, make popcorn and snow cones, etc. For the parade, volunteers help decorate the placita, and parade vehicles, set up chairs, collect litter, dispense water and event programs, and assist with other things as necessary.
Volunteering is ideal for students, retirees, and simply for those wanting to support San Elizario veterans and the community! Answer the call to service, and contact Ray Borrego via the Veterans Museum today. firstname.lastname@example.org or 915-851-0093 (call or text).
