Woburn Volunteers Needed for Holiday House Tour

The annual Woburn Holiday House Tour to benefit Social Capital Inc. is coming up on Sunday, December 13th. 8 total houses will be decorated and host to hundreds of Woburn residents touring the area.  We are looking for 16 volunteers, 2 per house, to greet people upon entry and take tickets. Many people will be in attendance and providing some support to the home-owners will be of great help to the event.

 

Each volunteer will work for 2 hours at a house and then be relieved by the second volunteer assigned to that house. Volunteers will either work from 1:15-3:15pm or from 3:15-5:15pm

Preparation will begin at 1:15pm and the event will finish at 5:15pm.

Tickets for the  tour will be free for volunteers as well as some food!

If you are interested in volunteering, contact Dan of SCI at darrick@socialcapitalinc.org

 

Thank you very much for your support!
