Park for a Cause Volunteers

As you know, Accord believes that we help people live their greatest lives through the services we provide in our community. Part of the dedication to achieve this mission includes using area resources to their fullest potential!

This is important because the Great Minnesota Get-Together, or the MN State Fair, arrives in less than 2 months! Accord’s BRAND NEW office building in St. Paul is in a perfect location, which allows fair attendees to park at a reasonable price.

We’re opening our lot so others can “Park for a Cause.” For only $20, anyone can park their car in an easily accessible lot safely and support Accord at the same time!

However, volunteers are the key to success! We are looking for people to help direct cars to parking spots.  Per each 2.5 hour shift, volunteers will assist MN State Fair attendees for only $20 a vehicle!

AND every volunteer who signs up for two shifts gets tickets to the fair!

How can you participate? Visit the website to sign up, help make a difference and build awareness of our organization!

Don’t worry – Accord will provide a quick and easy (virtual) training course, to make sure you’re ready and prepared to volunteer.


  • All volunteers are allowed to use Accord’s parking lot FOR FREE to attend the fair.

  • Volunteers will be provided with snacks and water and have access to quality bathroom facilities.

  •  Every volunteer will receive special t-shirts and hats for their service!

For safety reasons, we recommend that children stay home for this fundraising effort.
