Volunteer at a Special Event

The success the Parks & Recreation Department enjoys with its special events is due in no small part to the generous help of our volunteers. From helping in behind-the-scenes ways such as with set up or clean up, to helping throughout the event in situations such as running a game area or helping with the children’s arts and crafts area, volunteers are an essential part of our programs. Please email Cathy Fresia, cfresia@cityofsouthfield.com or call her at (248) 796-4603 if you are willing to volunteer at a Parks & Recreation Department special event.
