Volunteer Center

The Volunteer Center connects people to needs in the community.  We serve as a community clearinghouse for volunteerism, promoting volunteer opportunities to individuals, groups, and organizations that are seeking to serve the community. We also work with families who want to introduce volunteering to their children, setting the stage for future good citizens.

Community Thread’s mission is to leverage resources and volunteers to improve the quality of life for adults and their families in our local community. Our Volunteer Center is how we engage the public in our work of community building and this program remains a vital part of our impact.
