Volunteer at Makers Faire
We have another volunteer opportunity for this weekend at the NYC Makers Faire. Our BIG!NYC table is looking for volunteers to help set up/break down, greet visitors, talk about reuse in NYC and share stories about reuse projects. Shifts are available on Saturday 9/29 from 10am-7pm and Sunday 9/30 from 10am-6pm. Four-hour shifts are available both days. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in helping out (and checking out the Faire after your shift!).
