Corporate Volunteer Groups

Volunteering as a group gives employees in your organizaiton the opportunity to interact with each other outside of work and meet employees from different departments, all while giving back to the community. Corporate group volunteer projects vary according to the interests of your group.

Volunteers can work in our garden, planting flowers or beautifying our playground; other volunteer groups have held job readiness workshops, others have coordinated and hosted parties for seniors at one of our four Senior Centers. For a full list of possible activities, please refer to the volunteer brochure. We also welcome your suggestions.
