Heights Music Hop: Volunteers are needed for the fifth annual Heights Music Hop, which is presented by FutureHeights and takes place Thursday, Sept. 7; Friday, Sept. 8; and Saturday, Sept. 9. Volunteers will help staff music venues, canvass the district with maps, answer attendee questions and assist with musician check-in. Not only is this a fun opportunity, but volunteers will receive a Heights Music Hop shirt, snacks, and a free raffle ticket ($10 value) in the FutureHeights Chance Raffle, which features fabulous prizes from area businesses. Volunteer at www.heightsmusichop.com/volunteer.
CARE: A new program offered through collaboration with the Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center, CARE is seeking volunteers of all ages and ability to assist with a multitude of volunteer projects in the community. CARE coordinates and completes service projects and tasks in and around the homes of local older adults enrolled in the program. Without the time and dedication of volunteers, CARE would not be able to assist these homeowners to stay safe and independent in their homes as they age. CARE offers a variety of opportunities for volunteers, with projects ranging from technology assistance to helping out in the yard. With flexible scheduling, CARE is able to tailor its volunteer opportunities to fit busy lives! Interested in learning more? E-mail email@example.com or call 216-970-0599.
Heights Observer: FutureHeights publishes the Heights Observer and delivers it throughout Cleveland Heights and University Heights on or around the first of every month. Volunteers are needed to assist with deliveries to local businesses and institutions. Most routes take about an hour to complete. For more information, contact FutureHeights at 216-320-1423 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
