To sign up for the General Volunteer position, the volunteer only needs to select a time slot and Volunteer Services will direct them to a location that needs assistance upon arrival at the course.

Volunteers are encouraged to register early since committees and shift times are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

"Whether you've been with us every year or you're new to volunteering, there's something for everyone at the Meijer LPGA Classic," Cooper added. "We look forward to celebrating 10 years with our volunteers all while supporting the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program, which helps stock the shelves of local food pantry partners across the Midwest."
