“Cold hands, warm hearts” is the Holiday Lights at the Lake mantra when it comes to volunteering for our nightly event. Hey, it’s winter in Iowa and we know to expect there will be some weather, however, feedback from last year leads us to believe our volunteers tend to leave with all the warm fuzzies! We are so thankful for everyone who volunteered for our event in 2022 and are so excited to welcome new and old volunteers to our 2023 event.

Due to the nature of the event, volunteer shifts can not be split. We know, bummer! But, have no fear, Away in an Airstream donates the use of their beautiful Airstream (appropriately named Bambi) which serves as a place for our volunteers to warm up, have a cup of hot chocolate,

and a bit of a rest when needed.
