Dog Park Clean Up Day

The annual volunteer spring cleanup will be held on Saturday, March 31 from 8 a.m. to noon at local dog exercise parks in Madison and the surrounding communities. Volunteers are asked to volunteer at one of our dog parks where they will be met by a team leader with garbage bags.

Phone Bank Volunteer at WI Public TV

You can make great programs possible at Wisconsin Public Television by volunteering at our spring membership drive. Join us in our studios in Vilas Hall on May 5-8 by taking phone pledges from TV viewers. This is a great opportunity to volunteer with a group of friends or a student organization.

Your gift of time makes a difference at WPT. During a single shift, an individual phone bank volunteer can raise anywhere from $500 to $2,000! These important fund raising dollars make it possible to present educational, informative, and inspiring programs to viewers across the state.

Shifts are approximately four hours and include snacks, beverages and a free meal donated by a local restaurant. If interested, contact Ericka Balgord, Volunteer Manager at (608) 265-4436, or learn more at http://wpt.org/volunteer/.
