Community Service Opportunities

Lately we have been flooded with invitations to give back to the community in one way or another. Below you will find the information to the events that need volunteers.

24th Annual Spring Daze Arts & Crafts Festival

The Town of Cary’s 24th Annual Spring Daze Arts & Crafts Festival is coming up on Saturday, April 29, 2017. It takes over 150 volunteers to make this festival possible and we need your help! The Spring Daze Arts & Crafts Festival has great opportunities for high school students age 16+, or high school students under 16 who volunteer with a parent/guardian. Additionally, there are opportunities to volunteer in pairs and groups, allowing for great team building.


Click here to access the sign up. If you want to tell anyone else about this sign-up, ask them to search “Spring Daze Volunteers” at for the link.


Slots are available Fri. 4/28 and Sat. 4/29 in durations ranging from two to four hours. Feel free to sign-up for multiple shifts or on multiple days.


NOTE: A mandatory volunteer training for first-time volunteers in on Sat. April 22, 2017 at 1 p.m. in the Bond Park Community Center. All first-time volunteers are required to attend or they will not be allowed to volunteer. Return volunteers are welcome to attend if they would like to listen in on this year’s changes in the festival.


Additionally, the 41st Annual Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival is returning this summer on Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27. We know that it is hard to get in contact with schools and students over the summer, so please help me make your students aware that the sign-up for Lazy Daze will go live on Monday, July 17, 2017. This festival takes over 300 volunteers, so the support of the entire Wake County community is needed!


If you need any assistance or have questions in signing up, please feel free to reach out to me (my contact info is in the e-mail signature)!


If you would no longer like to be included on this e-mail list, please reply stating your preference.

Apex 4th annual 5K and play with Founder’s Day

Together we have brought in many sponsors and hope to have over 300 runners this year.  There are several things I would like to ask to see if you can participate in the event on April 8th.  Attached are forms etc.

It is run by the Apex Kiwanis club. These are things I hope that Apex High and the students can be a part of:

  • Need help with social media and setting up twitter/Instagram etc and getting the word out
  • The day of the race we would like a photographer and video for future marketing and web site
  • Volunteers for community service hours before/during and after the race…many opportunities
  • Would like to invite cheerleaders, stunt, band, henna club etc to be a part of the day and encourage runners
  • Get a team of runners from Apex…want to challenge Friendship?
  • Looking for sponsors
