Special Olympics Montana is looking for volunteers to help out at the 2013 State Summer Games, held in Billings from May 14 to 17.

Last year's games, also held in Billings, drew nearly 2,000 volunteers and organizers say they'd like to see those numbers grow in 2013.

Volunteers are needed each day for all aspects of the games, including setting up competition areas, helping with food and assisting during the competitions.

The games are in their second of three years in Billings. They bring more than 1,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities in to compete in Olympic-style sports.

To sign up to volunteer, call the volunteer hotline at 406-896-5695 and leave your name, contact information, times available and areas of interest.

For further information, call Special Olympics Montana at 406-216-5327 or 800-242-6876 or visit the Special Olympics Montana website.
