Long Island Volunteer Center Releases 

Summer/Fall 2016

Volunteer Opportunities List

Summer to Remember Volunteer

Volunteers from LIU C.W. Post campus Service Club help to distribute donations from the Long Island Volunteer Center to homeless veterans at the Northport VA Medical Center

The Summer/Fall 2016 list of over 130 volunteer opportunities compiled by the Long Island Volunteer Center has been released advertising the volunteer needs of agencies across Long Island. It is organized into community needs–Economy, Education, Environment and Health and is further broken down into voluntary categories from animals to social services, hunger/homelessness to mentoring, nature to cultural arts. Contact information for volunteer coordinators is included as well as the location of the agency needing volunteers. The list allows the interested volunteers to consider the breadth of needs across Long Island as well as the areas of interest that could be pursued while considering convenience to home, school or work.

AmeriCorps Ready Corps member Lindsay Ehrenpreis assisted with project activities and handed out UPS emergency preparedness kits as a volunteer thank you.
