Brookings Arts Council, Summer Arts Festival face painters
The Brookings Arts Council needs volunteers to paint wearable art on the faces of children at the Brookings Summer Arts Festival on July 13 and 14.
The Brookings Arts Council considers this event one of their biggest fundraisers to help support local art in the Brookings community. Volunteers are provided with a binder of 10 large and 10 small pre-approved designs, and therefore should not be required to come up with a design on the spot. All supplies are provided; volunteers just need to bring the talent.
Brookings Regional Humane Society, shelter volunteer
Brookings Regional Humane Society provides a safe and loving haven for a variety of animals while they wait for their forever home.
As you can imagine the shelter gets a little dirty. The organization is seeking volunteers to sweep, scoop litter boxes, wash windows, do laundry and dishes and interact with our animals. These volunteers are a vital part of the Humame Society’s mission and are greatly appreciated.

Brookings 2019 Great Strides provides a great opportunity for people within the community to get involved in a great cause. Participants can form walk teams at their workplace, through their clubs and organizations, or with friends and family.
