Volunteer Opportunities

volunteers

Attention, volunteers! If you are looking for a way to give back, there are many places and organizations that would appreciate and need what you have to offer! Visit Volunteer Match for endless opportunities to match your interest, age, and abilities. Here are just a few!

Los Angeles County – California Hospital Medical Center: Do you have a musical talent? California Hospital Medical Center is looking for people to share their musical talents. Share your voice, strings, keyboard, or other instrument and bring entertainment and comfort to the hospital environment. Whether a group concert in the lobby or a solo performance at the bedside of a patient, they welcome your talent and generosity! Call 213-742-5707 for more information, or visit California Hospital Medical Center.

Los Angeles County – Foothill Unity Center: Each year, many individuals and groups from local schools, businesses, and service organizations donate items and volunteer time to the Foothill Unity Center’s annual Thanksgiving and Holiday Distribution Programs conducted at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia. At the holiday distribution party, families receive huge holiday food boxes, as well as new toys and clothing for their children. Please join in the fun and sign up online.

Orange County – Kidworks: Kidworks in Santa Ana welcomes volunteers willing to help learners in their after-school program. Spending an hour or two a week with kindergarteners through 12th graders can make a difference in their world. You will support youth by helping them with their homework and other educational needs. You don’t need any specific academic knowledge, just a desire to be a consistent presence in a child or teen’s life. Must be 14 and up. Visit Kidworks.

San Bernardino County The Upland Public Library: Self-motivated individuals can devote a small portion of their time to serve the community and help out with the needs of the Upland Public Library. Duties include shelving library materials, cleaning library bookshelves, and keeping books in order, assisting with donation drop-offs, assisting with story time, and so much more! For more information, visit Upland Public Library.
