Mel Biegel has worked in the comptroller's office for 30 years and been volunteering for six. He said he's helped direct traffic, greet people, set up for the event and helped organize volunteer groups. Having fun while helping the community is what keeps him coming back.
"It's just fun and gives you a sense that you're helping someone else " in this case the children associated with PAL and also anybody who comes through there. There's a sense of excitement and it's neat to be involved," said Biegel. "Going as a group also helps promote volunteerism within our community and fosters a sense of community among our coworkers."
