Volunteer as a Group
Co-worker Team Building or Family Fun
Volunteering as a group to host an activity or fill shifts at our events is a great way to be active in your community and have fun together. We have a variety of opportunities for groups that have a contact person responsible for the group, and slots for teen groups that are part of an organization (like a school organization or church group) that has an adult contact.

Volunteer as an Individual
Enjoy an Energetic Day
We have many opportunities for individual adult or youth volunteers ranging from coordinators to shift work. We have a select number of slots for teens and children wishing to volunteer. We are eager to help them exercise their charitable muscle, but tasks are limited and require an adult to ultimately be responsible for them and their task. Please, view our Volunteer Agreement and request to be entered into our volunteer email list.
Host a Fundraiser
Great for Team-building or Classroom Charities
Host your own fundraising and awareness event or car show. We are so thankful for groups like the Athens-Limestone Chamber Youth Leadership group, the Athens Mayor's Youth Council, and First National Bank's Youth Advisory Board, Freed-Hardeman's XBX social club, plus community groups like the Limestone County Mustang Club, and other groups and even individual families that take the initiative to raise money for Eli's Block Party and join in the fight. Just let us know what you have in mind, and we will be glad to advertise your event on our social media outlets and help where and when we can. Thank you for remembering us! (We are unable to provide manpower or pay venue fees or purchase supplies for your event.)
Volunteer of the Year for 2021
All of our volunteers are exceptional - our events would not be growing so fast in popularity if they were not - but last year we were especially thankful for Gina Ridenour. She is that "get-er-done" person that is always on. When we asked if she wanted to grab a bite to eat after work with some of us (as a surprise for being recognized with this "prestigious" award), she said, "What do I need to prepare for the meeting?"-- a reflection of her dedication and work ethic. Gina brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our corps. She is always thinking of ideas to raise funds, ways to make what we do better, and is willing to take on the tough tasks. She finds most of our non-monetary support/donations like food for our Superhero Day volunteers, swag bag items for the car show. She coordinated lunch for almost 100 volunteers and coordinated the food trucks for our events. She stands ready to serve in whatever capacity is the most helpful. So, if you get a chance, please, thank Gina and all of our volunteers for their donation of time and brain power.
