Did you know that the Republic Parks & Recreation Department offers a VIP Program? VIP is short for “Volunteers in Parks”. Individuals seeking volunteer opportunities with our department are encouraged to become VIP members! As a member, you can choose what types of events or beautification projects you would like to assist with and get some great perks along the way. Upon registration with the program, members will receive a VIP Program Member car decal and welcome letter in the mail. Members also receive an official VIP t-shirt at their first volunteer shift to wear for all future volunteer opportunities. In addition, volunteer hours will be tracked; those that volunteer for eight or more hours within the calendar year will be invited to an annual VIP Recognition Event.
Local businesses and organizations are also encouraged to sign up as a VIP Community Partner and volunteer together as a team! As a VIP Community Partner, your business/organization will be recognized at any events in which you volunteer, announced at the annual VIP Recognition Event, and receive a VIP Community Partner decal for your door or window. Those volunteering through a business/organization will also receive the VIP t-shirt.
There will be several volunteer opportunities in the coming months with Have-A-Blast, Tigger and Tiger Tri, and the got Mud? Run.
For more information or to join the program, stop by the Republic Community Center or visit the VIP Program section of the city website at www.republicmo.com. Any questions should be directed to Chelsea Small, Recreation Supervisor, at 732-3500 or email@example.com.
