Office Administration and Support
We need friendly, cheerful volunteers to answer the telephone, greet visitors, input data, and help with general office duties. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9AM to 5PM.
Mailings and Special Events
Volunteers can help with labeling, stuffing, and sorting our mailings ready for the nice people at the post office. We also host occasional special events and need help doing everything from serving coffee to handing out brochures.
Corporate Group Lunch Providers
Provide simple lunches for volunteer construction crews (10-12 people) from local businesses and corporations working with us. This is a great volunteer opportunity for groups!
