Stamp Out Hunger-Food Sorter: Salvation Army
Interior Painter needed for properties: Hebron House Of Hospitality, Inc.
Several permanent housing locations and homeless shelters are in need of a good paint job. New paint really helps the guests and clients feel better! We have a very minimal budget for supplies and paint, so a donation of such would be very helpful as well.
Special Needs Teacher's Assistant: Children's Community Center
Volunteer help is needed at our childcare center working one-on-one with a preschool child with additional challenges. The volunteer will shadow the student, giving extra help where ever needed with planned activities, social time, outdoor play, art and field trips. Volunteers need to be able to commit to at least two mornings a week from 9 a.m. to noon.
Videographer: Good Friend, Inc.
If you know your way around a digital video camera, have some video editing software or access to it, and can put together a DVD of clips for a novel marketing piece, we'd love to talk to you! We do student and staff trainings regarding autism and are looking to create a video brochure. Tasks would involve recording four types of our presentations (each for about an hour), doing a few on-camera interviews, and editing some existing video together for separate clips accessible from a front menu. This is a great opportunity to expand your portfolio and gain experience.
