‘A Year to Volunteer’ crew makes big impact at Grand Haven State Park

A Year to Volunteer crew at Grand Haven State Park

Deciding to travel with a purpose in their retirement, Phil and Shar Roos started “A Year to Volunteer” in February 2020. This RV-centric volunteer nonprofit organization rallies people from all over the country to take part in fun and beneficial volunteer projects!

During their recent Michigan visit, 23 volunteers representing 11 different states contributed 1,300 hours at Grand Haven State Park. They shingled a roof, built a gazebo, laid and finished six concrete pads, cleaned, sanded and stained 75 picnic tables, installed sway swings, repaired several structures and painted just about everything, but they forged tons of new friends and made a huge impact in the park.

To date, they’ve completed (more like crushed!) 294 workdays, more than 31,000 volunteer hours and 24 projects, and have already visited 17 states.
