The Volunteer Center proudly sponsors Days of Service throughout the year.  These often coincide with national days of service and holidays, and offer terrific opportunities for individuals, families, friends, and school and community groups to volunteer their time in service to those in need — and have fun while doing it.   Mark your calendar now — and watch for updates throughout the year.
