Community Service Week Spotlights Montgomery County’s Volunteer Spirit


County residents are invited to give a few hours of their time to join Montgomery County’s annual celebration of community service by volunteering for one or more of the many projects planned for the 31st annual Community Service Week, which begins Sunday, October 22, and runs through the following Sunday, October 29.

Community Service Week is organized by the Montgomery County Volunteer Center. And, features all kinds of service projects sponsored by a wide range of non-profit organizations, schools, and government agencies. This year’s activities include opportunities to clean up streams and parks, collect canned goods for needy families and prepare meals for a homeless shelter. There are also opportunities to serve as event staff at fundraisers, assist nonprofits with outreach efforts, and visit with nursing home residents.

Visit the Volunteer Center website to see the complete list of service projects available and to sign up to help. Check back frequently as projects are added daily.
