How can I get Involved?

To be a successful Main Street community, Coon Rapids needs an army of volunteers who can do anything from sitting on task forces and boards to working events, stuffing envelopes and providing construction/demolition labor.

There are a variety of big jobs and little jobs, from sitting on a focus team making decisions, to helpers who want to just work on one specific project. Age does not matter. If you are retired, in high school or anywhere in between, we could use your help and ideas. If you aren’t sure were you can be of assistance, but want to lend a hand, let us know, and we can find a job to meet your interests and abilities. If you can swing a hammer, we’ll find you a job, if you can stuff envelopes, we’ll find you a job, if you want to be involved in decision-making, we’ll put you on a team.

Call or email the Main Street Coon Rapids director at 712-999-GROW or [email protected].
