We Need Volunteers & Donations!
All of the Volcano Art Center's programs and events need volunteers! Love The Arts is our most labor intensive event to pull off. Volunteer duties range in scope from helping to setup and prepare the venue, decorating, help with bid sheets, assessing items, soliciting donations, clean up after the event, and more. If any of these tasks are something you would be interested in helping with, please contact us here.
Some of the volunteers who give their time throughout the event can greatly benefit from your help by sponsoring a volunteer meal at $50 each. If you wish to support these hard working volunteers please donate here.
