All volunteers give freely of their time to assist our clients. No compensation is received by any HCFS volunteer, director or officer.
This hard-working group of volunteers performs all the duties necessary to keep HCFS operating smoothly and efficiently. From outside maintenance to picking up donations to filling orders and keeping careful records, volunteers work together to “get it done” for our clients. A wide variety of talents and skills (see below) are required to keep HCFS operating.
In addition to our regular tasks, occasionally additional volunteers are needed for a variety of special projects.
If you are interested in volunteering regularly or on an occasional basis, please complete and return the volunteer application to our office. We will contact you should an opening arise that matches your availability and skills.
