Little League seeking some volunteer help


Every good organization needs its fair share of volunteers to make everything work like a well-oiled machine. Lower Sussex Little League is certainly no exception, and right now they are hoping for a few good souls to step up and help out.

The local Little League organization is currently seeking volunteer umpires and concession-stand workers for their complex located on Pyle Center Road. No amount of time is too big or too small, as long as the volunteers are able to help out.

“We need openers and closers for the concession stand, and certainly umpires for our games,” LSLL President T.J. Bunting said. “The concession person would come out and open the stand, and then give assistance to the parent volunteers with whatever they would need. The closers would ensure the stand is clean and all the equipment is off before locking up.”

There is even some additional responsibility for the manager of the concession stand, such as ordering food, drink and other snack supplies, as well as working with the schedule for the volunteers throughout the season. That person would also be making deposits for the league, and making sure that the stand’s registers had appropriate monetary change on hand.

“We are fully run on volunteers,” Bunting added. “Any help that people can provide would be greatly appreciated.”

To volunteer to umpire, individuals can contact John Merritt at (302) 841-2806. All training, safety equipment and uniforms are provided.

To offer to help with the concession stand, contact Bunting at (302) 258-5583. Previous experience in the food service industry is not required, and they will certainly train any individual who steps up to help out the league.
