We always need volunteers! Volunteering does not have to mean a large time commitment. In fact, many of our volunteers donate an hour or two a month, when it fits into their schedule. A range of opportunities are available – take a look at some of the ideas listed below. If you only have a couple of hours to give each month or two, you might like to help with transport or a garage sale. Invite your family to volunteer with you! If you have more time to give, perhaps you’d like to become more involved in our ongoing functions.

Did you know? Many larger employers offer volunteer grants! Does yours? Check with your human resources department to find out. A volunteer grant is when companies provide either a set monetary donation for every hour an employee volunteers, or provide a grant once the employee reaches a certain threshold. Make your volunteer hours count even more!
Info you will need:
