Volunteer

You can help make a difference by providing the most personal gifts you can give – your time and talent.

Each year, thousands of volunteers generously give of themselves – their time, talents, and treasures – to a variety of our programs in order to help our community flourish. We provide a number of opportunities for individuals, groups, and families. Whether your strengths lie in event planning, mentoring, or just being a caring friend, know that any action you take will have a lasting impact. Volunteer opportunities also exist for groups, so grab some friends and help make a difference.
