Historic Milwaukee in need of more Doors Open volunteers

Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 09:42 am

Historic Milwaukee, Inc. (HMI), a nonprofit organization focused on preserving Milwaukee architecture and educating residents on Milwaukee history, is seeking more than 200 volunteers to help facilitate Doors Open Milwaukee 2013.


The nonprofit made an initial call for 400 volunteers in June and has since secured 167 people to fill roles such as greeting visitors, tracking visitor attendance, stamping children’s building passport and handing out program guides, according to an email HMI circulated to its membership base on Wednesday.

The third annual Doors Open Milwaukee, free and open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 21, and Sunday, Sept. 22, will welcome community members to check out more than 100 historic, iconic and innovative buildings in greater Milwaukee. Last year’s event featured 125 buildings open for public tours.

HMI needs volunteers who can work four-hour shifts at a Doors Open site on Sept. 21 or Sept. 22. Shifts are broken up from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., and volunteers can work as many shifts as they want.

HMI will host orientations for all event volunteers on Saturday, Aug. 10, and Tuesday, Aug. 13.
