Donation Needs: They are always in need of art/office supplies, board games, recreational equipment, etc.
Event Volunteers: They enlist the help of volunteers for several special events for members and fundraisers for donors throughout the year. Their events change from year to year, and they send out a monthly e-newsletter with details for each event.
How to volunteer: In order to work directly with members on a consistent basis, volunteers will need to attend an orientation offered twice a month and submit to a background check. Volunteers will then attend a staff shadowing day that better acquaints them with the Club environment. Volunteers must be able to commit to at least 20 hours of service per semester if working directly with members.
