Finding volunteer opportunities in our community has never been easier!

Margie, Hospice Volunteer
Volunteer Visiting is a two-way street. The client benefits from having me go into their home for a chit-chat; perhaps a discussion on the news of the day or help solve a problem for them over a cup of coffee or tea. Volunteering has given me a sense of pride in myself, knowing our community to be a better place to live due to this visiting program.
Friendly Visitor
I had contemplated becoming a Big Sister for quite some time when one day I just decided to go down to their office and find out more about it. ….. It's been just over a year now and both Ayden and I are still really enjoying our time together. At first I was concerned about what we would do and the fact that I am an older Big Sister than some, but it is so wonderful to know that I am making a difference in a child’s life in the most ordinary of things. …… I could go on and on about the time we spend together but I would really like to encourage anyone who may be thinking about it or considering becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister to just do it! It truly is time well spent. The need is great and you can be part of the solution, you can invest in the life of a child with just your time. Ayden and I just can't wait to meet you at the next Big Brothers Big Sisters event! Come on, there are some great kids here that need a friend to come along side them and mentor them into becoming all they can be! See YOU at the next event!
