Volunteer With Us
We believe that every person has gifts and talents to share with others. It is our desire to partner with those in the community and surrounding areas who desire to utilize their time and skills to serve the blind and visually impaired.
There is a place for every volunteer at The Blind Center! We will seek to find the place where you can best serve to advocate for those impacted by blindness.
Current Volunteer Opportunities Available:
Gift Shoppe: This is the perfect volunteer position for someone who loves to work with customers, organize the Gift Shoppe, assist with pricing and oversee Gift Shoppe sales. Gift Shoppe hours are Monday-Thursday from 9am-3pm. Volunteers select their own hours and days for scheduling.
Administrative Assistant: For the volunteer who loves to assist with answering phones, creating and distributing flyers, marketing and promotion, this is the ideal space for you to serve!
Providing Lunches: We serve the clients lunch Tuesday-Thursday of each week. We currently have a need for volunteers who are willing to prepare and/or provide a nutritional lunch for 10-15 people once per week or once per month. We currently have four days each month that are not volunteer driven.
Crafters: The Blind Center is seeking volunteers who are skilled in crafting, specifically with jewelry design, artwork creation, decoupage, and creating budget-friendly, marketable crafts that can be constructed by the clients with guidance from the volunteer. All of these items are placed in our Gift Shoppe and available for purchase. The proceeds generate funds for the clients that we serve daily.
Fundraisers: If you Love event-planning, social gatherings and collaborating with others to raise funds for a noble cause, this is where we need you! The Blind Center hosts 4 fundraisers per year in order to sustain funds to continue serving the blind. Because we are a non-profit organization (501 c(3)) and do not currently receive any federal or state funding, we rely upon fundraisers and donations to sustain The Blind Center! We would love to have you come and join this team!
