Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a rich and rewarding experience allowing you to connect with your community, neighbors, City staff and area businesses. Become involved and make a difference in your community. Meet new friends, have a sense of accomplishment by giving back to your community, and grow as a person. Plus, it is a lot of fun.
