Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P)

Animal lovers!  The staff at Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P) needs volunteers in a variety of positions to help make life better for the fur babies.  Volunteers under 16 can help but must volunteer with a parent.  Just a few hours a day, a week, or a month can make a difference in the lives of these four-legged friends!  Please visit a3padvocates.org/volunteer or email a3padvocates@gmail.com to learn how you can get involved.

Community Feeding Taskforce Food Helpline

You can help fight hunger!  The Community Feeding Taskforce Food Helpline urgently needs Spanish speaking volunteers who can assist with answering calls to the Helpline on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Volunteers will answer calls from those in need of food, redirect callers to a food pantry closest to where they live and arrange home deliveries for shut ins.  Training is provided; however, volunteers will work from home and must have their own computer and Internet access.  It’s a flexible schedule and call volume is low enough someone can do this while working from home.  Please visit bit.ly/314ZgDn for more information and click on the Respond button to sign up.

RSVP’s VETS Program

Help support veterans!  RSVP’s VETS Program which provides transportation for veterans and their spouses to medical appointments is back, and volunteer drivers age “55 or better” are needed!  Volunteers must be at least 55 years old and successfully complete both a criminal and driving record check.  It’s a wonderful way to give back and say “thank you” to our veterans for all they’ve done!  Please email jhawkins@volunteerprincewilliam.org or call 571.292.5307 for more information.

Wreaths Across America
