K-W Education Foundation Volunteer Opportunities

Department Page: 

We understand that you may not have the time or desire to make a long term commitment to every cause, but perhaps you are willing to spend a few hours, days, or even weeks on a specific project that intrigues you. From time to time we post these opportunities in order to give you a chance to connect with other parents and community members. Some of these opportunities could include selling treats at the Rose Fest fundraiser, selling water at the Wanamingo 4th of July celebration, helping with the elementary school carnival, or even planning and executing a fundraiser of your own. Visit this page often for one-time projects that we may want help with.
