As a part of the Troy High School Homecoming game, Troy Main Street is hosting a speed volunteering event to help local businesses collaborate with people who want to make a difference.

On Friday, September 28, eight local non-profit organizations will have booths located in front of Troy Memorial Stadium with volunteer activities. For every five minutes you volunteer, you receive a discount card to downtown businesses. The more you volunteer, the more discounts you earn, according to a Troy Main Street press release.
