Looking for volunteer opportunities in Des Moines or Cedar Rapids? You've come to the right place! Variety - the Children's Charity depends on the generosity and goodwill of people who devote their time and energies to helping children.

Multiple Dates: Bikes for Kids

Through the Bikes for Kids program, Variety awards bikes, locks and helmets to kids who have never had a new bike. Volunteers are needed to load and unload bikes, set up stations, fill out registration forms, check children in and fit helmets. Contact the Variety Office or call 515-243-4660 for more information.
