Lakes Letter – early June


TOPICS: Lakes of Fire Food Drive | Volunteer Shifts Needed | Art Honoraria Chosen | LoF Tickets Fire Sale | Survival Guide

Lakes Of Fire Food Drive

Please bring additional non-perishables (cans preferred) to donate to the 3rd Annual LOF Food Drive!  Be sure to drop off any unused/unopened non-perishables on your way out on Sunday!

All food is being donated to the Trinity Lutheran Community Food Bank in New Era Michigan.  This food bank feeds over 4,500lbs of food to more than 180 families every week – this area of Michigan has one of the highest hunger rates and you can help!  The Greeter station will be accepting the food donations during their shifts and exodus. We’ve donated large quantities of food to the hungry in previous years, please help us keep paying it forward.

(Unopened/Unused Toiletries Are Also Welcome!)

Food must be:

  • Unopened
  • Non-perishable
  • Cans are preferred
  • No glass please

Important Volunteer Shifts Need You!

Perimeter Ninjas

Lakes of Fire’s awesomeness inevitably draws curious thrill seekers without tickets. In an effort to keep our boundaries secure and provide a safe environment, the Department of Perimeter Ninjas have been summoned!  Check out the Perimeter Ninjas page for more details – sign up to help protect our borders!


The Emergency Services Department still is in need of volunteers for critical shifts! If you are at least CPR and First Aid certified or higher or a trained firefighter, we want to hear from you. Email esd-medical@lakesoffire.org to sign up! Help is especially needed Saturday and Sunday morning, as well as throughout the day after gate opens.

The ESD Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) are also seeking volunteers with a professional background in crisis intervention. This can be mental health, social work, domestic violence, sexual assault, crisis-specific healthcare or other relevant work in which you’re accustomed to working with those experiencing a difficult time. Please email foxfur@lakesoffire.org if you are interested in more info!

Bean Counter

We are seeking a volunteer to take on a very important role for next year’s Lakes Of Fire – our Bean Counter! This position roughly equates to the Accounting Department, and helps keep track of expenses, receipts, money coming in, etc. It’s a critical administrative position that helps keep G.L.E.A. Inc.’s Lakes of Fire event profitable, financially secure, legal, and openly transparent to our community. Emailgryffn@gmail.com if you’d like to contribute.

NOTE: The Volunteer Sign-Up Form will be closing on Friday at Midnight, EST.  All volunteer inquiries after that time must go directly to the departments you’d like to work for, or contact volunteers@lakesoffire.org for questions.
