Be a Community Champion!
Volunteers are very special to the Woodlands Foundation. They make a direct impact in our mission of enriching the lives of children and young adults with disability and chronic illness. Whether you are a large, medium, or small organization, or an individual, you can make a difference!!
What will you do as a volunteer at the Woodlands?
You can participate in activities with our children and adults, or you can perform manual tasks like clearing brush, baking cakes, making repairs to our facility, or beautifying our grounds. In 2010, we had nearly 900 individual and group volunteers who contributed over 6,000 hours of service! Without you, the Woodlands would not be able to give our participants the experiences they want, need, and deserve.
Group Volunteers: Corporations, Businesses, and Organizations
Your group can make a lasting impression on our participants as well as the community! Our year-round volunteer opportunities are an excellent way for local corporations, businesses, and organizations to enable their staff to get involved in the community and share their time, energy, and talents to help the Woodlands provide activities that nurture the social, cultural, recreational, environmental, and spiritual well-being of our participants.
This experience is a fantastic way to not only make a direct impact in the lives of individuals with special needs, but also participate in a great team-building exercise. Volunteering at the Woodlands Foundation creates an atmosphere of camaraderie as you interact with our participants and work on projects and activities that help us maintain our fully accessible facilities. Please call 724-935-5470 or email our Staffing and Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
You can be a community champion all by yourself! The Woodlands Foundation offers many opportunities for you to participate in projects, help with activities, and interact with our participants. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, and the personal rewards and experiences are something you will have for the rest of your life. The Woodlands Foundation greatly benefits from your generous spirit and free gift of your time and talents. We would not be able to accomplish any of the wonderful things that happen at the Woodlands without our generous and talented volunteers. Please fill out an Individual Volunteer Application if you are interested in volunteering!
