Become a Sponsor


There are so many ways you can help us continue to grow our Earth Day Expo! Something we seek each year is sponsorship to help cover the costs of making this a day filled with activities, learning and fun for the entire community! This Expo is offered free to the public and all are welcome! We are a non-profit organization so we rely upon the generosity of our sponsors. If you are passionate about the health of our community and our planet, why not become a sponsor ? Your sponsorship dollars are not only greatly appreciated but are tax deductible!

Help out by becoming a Volunteer

We couldn't begin to take on the large job of creating this Earth Day Expo without the help of our many volunteers. Our volunteers help us with everything from setting up and taking down tables and display areas,to many more things going on throughout the day. Our volunteers can choose to help indoors or out. If you enjoy working with children, we have children's games and crafts going on all day. We have volunteers helping at tables for door prizes or just keeping us organized throughout the day. We encourage you to sign up to volunteer if you have a passion for the planet and our community. It's a great way to give back while working with some wonderful people!  If you're curious but not yet ready to commit, please use our contact information listed below to ask any questions you may have. Thank you in advance for all of your help! We appreciate you !!

Thank you to our generous sponsors !
