Get Involved

Due to COVID all in person volunteering has been suspended temporarily.

Volunteers release “happy hormones” (endorphins, dopamine & serotonin) which contribute to feeling a sense of satisfaction. Doing volunteer work one finds meaningful can help increase one’s positive outlook on life, motivate a person to do more for themselves and their community, and go home feeling rewarded.
