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. Here at the City of Montgomery, we value our volunteers and thank you immensely for giving your time to help make the City of Montgomery the wonderful city it is.
