Volunteer At Stroll On State

Calling all volunteers! Stroll on State needs volunteers for a variety of days and tasks. Sign up to make downtown Rockford Merry & Bright on one of the Stroll Decoration Days on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18 (8 a.m. - 5 p.m. includes 2 shifts). Plenty of volunteers are also needed the day of Stroll on State on Saturday, November 25! From the early morning, all the way until after the event, volunteers help to make the magic happen! A variety of shifts and opportunities are available. 

Volunteers are also needed for Santa's Workshop on Tuesdays (6 - 9 p.m.) and Saturdays (8 a.m. - Noon) at the Sharefest building downtown (301 S. Winnebago St.) starting on October 7. Sign-ups are not needed for these volunteers - just show up! The last volunteer opportunity is on Saturday, January 13 for Back in the Box Day as the Stroll decorations are returned to storage.

Volunteers between 12 and 15 years old are allowed and welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Volunteers that are 16-17 years old are allowed and welcome, but must have a signed waiver by parent or guardian.
