Mingle, laugh, and enjoy the night with the local “who’s who” in our area!

Community Thread started in 1967 when a group of concerned citizens mobilized volunteers to help people no longer able to drive with rides to obtain medical care. Leveraging volunteers around unmet community needs continues to inform our work today.

Our volunteer-oriented programs serve people of all ages. Families, individuals, employees, and students participate in our signature service initiatives, which occur multiples times a year. We can also connect volunteers with many other organizations in the area.

Thrive at Community Thread (Thrive) features benefits such as social events, wellness activities, transportation options, home services, and volunteer opportunities. Thrive’s goal is to keep our neighbors socially connected while living independently in their homes.
