Hello all! We’ve been getting several requests lately about current volunteer opportunities. Here is a comprehensive list courtesy of the St. John Community Foundation.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact the organization via email or Facebook first, if possible. (In some cases, the only contact we have is a telephone number so please call for to learn more about those opportunities.) There are lots of you out there who would like to help, which is amazing and a HUGE thank you for that, but we do not want to clog up their phone lines. 🙂
