Community Volunteer Nights

Whether it's just you and your sibling, niece or nephew, or with your kids, family-friendly volunteer opportunities provides families a way to positively impact their local community while spending quality time together and strengthening communication and bonds between parents and kids. Families can volunteer at our monthly family-friendly volunteer projects, or hold a food drive on their own.

You do not have to go through volunteer orientation to participate in one of these events. Space is limited so please click on a date below to RSVP for an upcoming Community Volunteer Night.

*Please note: These are not drop-off events. If your child is under the age of 14, there must be a parent or guardian present to volunteer with them. If your child is 14-17 and wants to volunteer alone, you must send them with a Parental Consent Form. Thank you!
