Description

We are looking for volunteers to come in and help celebrate the holiday season in our programs. Whether you want to help serve a meal on a certain day, decorate the programs, bake cookies, share your musical talents, or come in and visit with people, we have opportunities for you!
Interested? You can apply at sghottawa.com/volunteer or email us at [email protected].

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Volunteers will be able to share their special skills, help reduce the loneliness and stress of the holidays, and get to share some holiday cheer with some of those that need it most in our community. It is a great way to get more involved in your community. If people choose that they would like to continue to volunteer after the holidays, we have multiple options available.
How will the organization benefit?
SGH benefits from volunteers sharing their passions and talents to reduce loneliness, increase hope and dignity, provide food services, and increase the overall joy in the lives of those that use our services.
