From time to time we need specifically skilled or trained volunteers to assist us in our programs. We are now accepting volunteer applications for the following positions. Please note that all volunteers are subject to background testing for the safety of the children involved in our programs.
Thanksgiving Volunteer opportunity
Would you and your family like to help make Thanksgiving possible for other struggling families in our local community? Thanksgiving Delivered was launched to help bridge the meal gap that many families experience when the meal programs they depend on are not available during the extended school holiday. Rather than just providing a single holiday meal, Thanksgiving Delivered provides all the necessary ingredients for recipients to prepare their own Thanksgiving meal at home, with sufficient leftovers to carry them through the extended holiday weekend. We believe that this allows recipients to maintain their dignity while forging their own holiday traditions as a family.
Are you a professional photographer or talented amateur photographer? We are in need of volunteer photography services during our events. These pictures may be used for promotion purposes on our website and social media accounts. Photos may also be provided to event partners or guests in the form of print, digital images or photo books. Generally photographers are needed to for 1-4 hours (depending on event) and we ask that final pictures are uploaded to Dropbox within 3-5 business days of the event.
Experienced sidewalkers and handlers are desired to assist during pony rides and grooming sessions with horses during Sensory Petting Zoo experiences. Volunteers may also be responsible for grooming and bathing horses. Generally volunteers are utilized after school hours during the week and on Saturdays between 1-5PM.
Are you a talented Seamstress with a love of animals? We are in the process of creating unique costumes for some of our animal ambassadors to use in upcoming special events. We will provide all materials and only need your seamstress services.
Are you a talented Carpenter? Two carpenters are needed to assist with creating props and decorations for our upcoming holiday events and to create additional play equipment for our Goat Playground.
Are you a talented artist or painter? Painters/Artists are needed to paint our Free Library Initiative Bookcases and volunteer their time painting at the farm.
