CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Community Clean-up volunteers needed
Mayor Linda M. Balzotti, the City of Brockton and a number of partners are seeking volunteers to participate in an annual neighborhood clean-up on Saturday, June 22nd.
The event will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 12 p.m., across from 33 and 37 Wyman Street. It is being co-sponsored by Mayor Balzotti; the Brockton Housing Authority; the Brockton Redevelopment Authority; Self Help, Inc.; Neighbor Works of Southern Mass.; Old Colony YMCA – Youth Build; Father Bills & Main Spring; Home Depot; Irving’s Home Center; Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department; Crescent Credit Union; Boomer’s Wholesale Market; and the Metro South Chamber of Commerce.
For more information about the clean-up, or to volunteer, call Robert Jenkins at the Brockton Redevelopment Authority at (508) 586-3887.
The Charity Guild, Inc. Food Pantry and Thrift Shop
The Charity Guild has immediate openings for volunteers in both our Thrift Shop and Food Pantry.
Hours are flexible and you have the opportunity to work in a relaxed, fun environment while you are helping both the Charity Guild and our clients.
By enlisting the aid of many volunteers, the Charity Guild is able to keep expenses low and concentrate funds on providing food to families and individuals in the greater Brockton area.
The benefits of helping in the shop or pantry are significant. It is a very hands-on experience and volunteers actually see and talk to the people they are helping. Knowing that you are touching the lives of so many in such a positive way is a truly rewarding experience.
Students may be able to complete their required Community Service hours in the Thrift Shop or Food Pantry.
For more information, call Lynne (508) 583-5280 or visit www.thecharityguild.org.
