Volunteer Now! Spring 2011

3 05 2011

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Whether you’re looking to get involved for the first time, try something new, or increase your involvement, you’ve come to the right place.   Our Volunteer Now! Spring 2011 publication features a variety of new and ongoing opportunities, with links and contact information that will lead you to more information.

Throughout the year, you can also use our Online Volunteer Connection, a one-stop resource for volunteers and those looking for assistance.

Finally, with warmer weather upon us, many of you may be spring cleaning at home.   As you sort through your household items, furniture, and clothing, consider donating anything that is new or gently used to someone in need. There is a listing of needed donations for local agencies on our website or contact your favorite community group to see which items they may be able to accept.

We encourage you to share the Volunteer Now! Spring 2011 publication with your friends and family.  Thank you for your service to the community!
