Volunteering helps make our world a better place-whether you're tutoring kids, helping in a hospital. clearing hiking trails or cleaning up the beach.
It can require as little as an hour a week or a month or much more.
You can share some skill that you already have or try something new.
Here are some things you might want to do.
We organize and promote volunteer projects that individuals of all ages can participate in. Our activities include a school supplies drive for School on Wheels, a toy drive, beautification projects at local schools and serving dinner to homeless clients of Turning Point Transitional Housing.
