USE PREVIOUS or GAIN NEW SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Seventy-five percent of volunteers are motivated by a desire to put their accumulated skills and experience to work. Many share their good fortune while others give their time in gratitude for what they have received. Our volunteers are involved in every department - from maintenance to food service and much more.
