Volunteer Opportunities Abound!

Flexible hours
Feel good returns
Zero pay, zero pressure
What’s Not to Like?

Seriously, "the world is hugged by the faithful arms of volunteers,” and I agree with the unknown author who said “volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer you vote every day for the kind of community you want to live in.” The Coalition literally would not exist without all the volunteers who have come through our doors in the past 9 years.

I would like to offer to you, the reader, some ways to connect and engage with the Coalition and contribute your talents for the “kind of community you want to live in.” But first, at the risk of forgetting a few names, I would like to recognize my fellow volunteers from our early beginnings, who still show up . . . . . I am truly inspired and amazed at your perseverance and passion. You have my deepest gratitude and loyalty . . . THANK YOU!
