Fayette Cares relies on hundreds of committed volunteers year-round. But volunteering is a two-way street that can benefit volunteers as much as it does our charitable work.
Studies have shown that the more people volunteered, the happier they were. Research has also shown that regular volunteering reduces the risk of dementia and isolation in retired people. For children, volunteering is a great way to build character and shape young minds. As an added bonus, it’s calorie-free!
At Fayette Cares there are volunteer opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, and availabilities. Want a one-time project for your group or family? The spring plant sale may be the perfect place for your bunch to bloom!
Maybe you’re retired and want to keep your skills sharp or share your creativity on an event leadership team.
Can’t come to our agency due to childcare, work, or other limitations? Train to answer the hotline on your cell phone one day a week and help break the cycle of violence.
Can you sniff out donated gems, showcase merchandise like a fashionista or provide stellar customer service? Then we need you at the charity thrift shops. This team also earns volunteer bucks to spend like cash in our stores!
Volunteer assignments are a great way to meet school, church, and other community service requirements. And let’s face it, helping others just sparks happiness. So this year add fun, fellowship, and fulfillment to your life by volunteering for Fayette Cares. Apply onine at FayetteCares.org/volunteer.
