We Give Back to our Volunteers

Each time you volunteer with us, you get points. When you reach 8 points, you can redeem them for a membership. If you reach 25, you can redeem them for a class. No need to count the points as we keep track of them for you.  Just let us know when you would like to redeem them! Please note that points are non-transferable.

We appreciate all the help we can get! Upon signing up to volunteer, a member of our staff will contact you to let you know if your assistance is needed.
