Volunteers Welcome!

ImageThere are many opportunities for volunteers to be involved at the Center. Our volunteers come from a cross section of our community. They are housewives, college students, business people, retired persons, teachers or part time workers.

The wonderful thing about volunteering is that it brings so much satisfaction and camaraderie…to you and to those you help. If you’d like to volunteer, or have ideas for programs you could lead, we’d love to hear from you. If you aren’t sure how you can help, call our Volunteer/Program Coordinator at 401-268-1594 or email her at rwilcox@northkingstown.org and she can fill you in.
