Volunteers Make the Difference at THPRD

Here are several good reasons why

THPRD volunteers make you feel welcome, engage your kids with activities, and keep our parks and trails safe and clean. But do you know just how important volunteers are to THPRD? More than 600 volunteers provide support for special events throughout the district this summer.

Signing up is Simple

To sign up for a one-day event, simply visit thprd.org/volunteer.  You’ll see a list of upcoming events that need volunteers. Fill out a quick form, choose your shift, and you’re all set!

THPRD’s Biggest Events

The three summer events are the July 27 Party in the Park, Big Truck Day on August 3, and Fiesta en el Parque on August 18. If you’d like to volunteer but aren’t sure where your time would make the most difference, sign up for one (or more) of these events.

Find Your Adventure and Enjoy the Music

The lineup for this year’s Concert in the Park Series is full of amazing artists. When you volunteer at one of these neighborhood concerts, you’ll be able to enjoy the music while giving back.

Support Community Sports

Sports events can be inspiring, and none more so than Twilight Track & Field Meets on July 11, 18, and 25, or the All Ability Tri4Youth Triathlon on August 10. Your support at these events will help young athletes competing in this fun, safe race for ages 8 to 26.

Great for Team Building

Your employees, church group, or sports team can all work together while supporting our community. Party in the Park, Big Truck Day, and Fiesta en el Parque all offer opportunities for large groups.

If you’d like to sign up a group, contact Kelly Barten at kbarten@thprd.org or 503.619.3939.

Earn Credit

Volunteering at THPRD events is a fun way to earn service hours that students need for graduation. You can sign up for a shift with a friend, and choose a position you’re comfortable with. Prefer to get crafty and utilize your creativity? Would you rather assist with directing cars to a parking area? Or would you prefer to work with youth of all abilities? No matter your interest, THPRD has an engaging volunteer role for you.
