Amy Minnick Moore regards volunteering with Westfield Welcome, the city’s hospitality program, during the Indianapolis Colts’ Training Camp at Grand Park as an ideal way to give back to her community while also enjoying the professional football atmosphere.
“I’ve been helping with Westfield Welcome since (it started), and I just like to help in our community as much as I can, and of course I’m a big Colts fan,” she said. “So, when we brought the Colts camp here, I had to be a part of it.”
Moore is in her second year of volunteering during Colts Training Camp, which moved to Westfield in 2018. Last year, she mainly volunteered at ticket areas, but this year she’s doing more this year.
“Last year, it was fun to see the excited people coming in to watch the camp,” said Moore, who volunteers at the elevator for the VIP Suite and checks wristbands for fans at the bleachers.
The Westfield Police Dept. also uses volunteers from its citizens’ academy graduates. Between Westfield Welcome and WPD, the city has more than 300 volunteers for Colts Training Camp this year.
“I think if you live in a community, you should be a part of the community and do as much as you can,” Moore said. “I think it’s an important thing to do for your community and this one’s fun. It’s just a fun time if you’re a football fan at all.”
Moore is volunteering six shifts this year, and she was able to enjoy one practice day as a fan July 28. Last year, she volunteered for four shifts.
