Service in the City

 March Volunteer

Need Support Selling New Transit Pass
Starting in March, new transit passes will be available for Salt Lake City residents. Mayor Becker and UTA have partnered to design a new annual pass available for $360, or payable in $30 a month installments (to learn more, click here). This is a great deal and will hopefully encourage even more people to protect our air quality by utilizing public transportation. Throughout March and April, we'll need several volunteers able to help us sell these new passes at libraries and local events. As a volunteer, you'd be helping answer questions for customers in line, administering short surveys, and potentially take photos for people's passes. If you're interested in volunteering for one of these shifts, please email Amanda at amanda.anderson@slcgov.com.
We need 2 volunteers for each of these shifts!

Pruning and weeding at the Washington Square Garden (450 S 200 E). Project day and time is flexible to the group wanting to take it, as long as it's before March 15th.
Raking leaves and tree seeds at Poplar Park (800 S Emery St). Project day and time are flexible.
