We LOVE our volunteers. In fact, we could not do the work we do without volunteers. Volunteers are needed every day in so many ways. From helping seniors go to the doctor and run errands, to making crafts and cards to helping in the office. There's a place for you as a volunteer at Friends for Life.

Our volunteers are all ages. Some are retired individuals, others are school kids or church groups. We need people of all skills and talents, especially those who have a big heart and happy smile.

Volunteer at Friends for Life

Just a few hours a week or month can make a huge difference in someone's life. Or maybe your group would like to select a special project and spend one day a year helping someone in need. We listed some of our many opportunities below.
