Thank you to all of the volunteers who participated! The next service day will be our MLK Service Day in January.

In an action to rekindle the spirit of unity that followed the tragic events of September 11, The Volunteer Center invites area residents to honor local victims and heroes by engaging in service to help build a stronger community. This community-wide call to action is designed to engage people of all ages in a wide-variety of one-time and ongoing volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers under 14 require a parent or guardian to attend.

Online registration requires a volunteer profile. To set up a profile for yourself, click here. If you are planning to register as a family, we ask that you create a volunteer group in your family's name. This will allow us to better track the number of slots remaining for the project.
