You will do some sort of volunteering at each program, so you will be able to list “volunteering at your local library”, as a community service on your work and college applications.
Some things we will do: collect food for the Hope Center, make crafts for someone or for use at the library, and this fall we will make wreaths and center pieces. Come have fun with your friends and earn community volunteer hours!
