  • Valuable training is provided for all volunteer positions.
  • Build your self-confidence and feel valued.
  • Enjoy the satisfaction of making a difference.
  • Volunteer hours are logged and acknowledged.
  • Letters of reference will be available for work performed which will add to positive work resumes.
