Volunteer

Our dedicated volunteers are the life-blood of the Center. They make everything we do possible: we could not function without the time, energy and commitment they generously provide. Volunteers are of all ages, from teenagers eager to perform community service, to parents with school-aged children, and retirees who now have time and want to give back to their community. 

Most of our volunteers work to support the daily operations of the Center: receiving and sorting donations, or directly assisting our families in need in our food pantry and clothing boutique.  Some volunteers dedicate themselves to a regular shift each week, while others volunteer as needed.

In each of these key areas, volunteers work in teams of 2 or 3, and work a three-hour shift.  We find that many of our volunteers look forward to the time they spend with their team each week.  

Volunteers can also participate in the Center’s work by teaching classes and workshops, such as English or computer skills, maintaining the building and grounds, packing school supplies or assisting in fundraising efforts. We have many ways you can volunteer; we’ll try to find a way that suits your talents and inclinations. 

To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Susan Bretti at sbretti@communitycenternw.org, or call her at 914-232-6572, ext. 105.  We’d love to hear from you!
