Football concessions with Feral Cat Friends
Feral Cat Friends needs your help in the concession booth at this fall's Indiana University home football games. In exchange for providing concessions help, Feral Cat Friends will earn a 14% commission on sales that will assist them in continuing the work they do to reduce the feral and stray cat population in south-central Indiana. Volunteers age 19 or older are needed for 5.5-6 hour shifts. All volunteers are required to have an alcohol-serving license. A link will be provided for those without a license to obtain one before their scheduled volunteer day. Volunteers will serve as cashiers, runners and food prep and service. Groups are welcome and encouraged to volunteer together! Visit https://tinyurl.com/football-concessions to view shifts and learn more. Please contact Cathi L. Eagan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
