Letter Stuffing

As the Friends of Metro Parks ramp up our efforts to educate residents of Franklin County about the importance of our park district and the role they play by supporting our parks through the levy, we need to begin to raise funds to support our efforts. Join us as we volunteer to fold, stuff, seal, and mail letters to individuals asking them to commit to supporting our efforts this November and beyond. We will have food and good conversations as we spend a few hours together. This is the first of many future volunteer opportunities to help build our organization and educate folks about the levy.
