Special Events Help

The Up Center has been selected as a Norfolk FestEvents Service Charity, and will manage beverage sales during the festival season at Town Point Park in Downtown Norfolk.  All tips and a percentage of sales will support the agency’s programs and services that protect children, strengthen families, empower people in crisis and maximize independence for those with disabilities. The Up Center reaches over 10,000 people a year in Hampton Roads and you can help support that mission! Click here for a list of festival dates and times.

Help Staff The Up Center Booth

Must be 18 and older to volunteer. The booth is at events all over Hampton Roads. Click here for a location near you.
