Could We Use Your Help? Yes!

Visitors to the Family Resource Center sometimes ask how they can support our work and if we could use their help. The answer is: Yes! And there are many ways to help. We warmly welcome volunteers for one-time projects and events, or in some instances, ongoing positions. Volunteers assist us in critical ways; staffing fundraisers and events, picking up trash along Oak Tree for the Adopt-A-Road project, delivering items for the food pantry (so many thanks to Nancy Lorenz—we could not offer food pantry services without you!), sorting and shelving donations for the clothes closet, and more.

In order to tackle projects and maintain the beautiful Oak Tree School campus, we periodically organize work days. We will host our next community work day on Wednesday, January 30th from 11 am-3 pm. Weather permitting, we plan to do yardwork, pick up trash for Adopt-A-Road, and paint picnic benches. Indoor tasks should it be rainy are to clean and organize various spaces around the campus. Please RSVP for the work party in person or by calling 292.3174. We would like to hear in advance from anyone planning to help out so that we can prepare tools and a plan for what to accomplish. We will provide refreshments for all volunteers. If you cannot attend the work party but would like to work another day or are interested in volunteer work of any type, please contact us—we would certainly love to hear from you.
