VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
Adopt A Park: Dicken's Farm Natural Area Monthly Cleanup Rotarians get down and dirty while getting together on the 3rd Saturday of each month to clean up this section of the St. Vrain Greenway from S. Pratt to Sunset followed by breakfast and socializing.
United Way Day of Caring at The Learning Center: Love to garden, do yard work, lead clean ups both indoors and outdoors, under take maintenance and improvement projects? Then this activity is for you. Once a year Rotarians tackle the To Do List from the Learning Center. Volunteers provide their own gloves, hand tools, and sometimes even power tools, depending upon the To Do List.
Downtown Clean & Green. Get your hands dirty at the annual Longmont Downtown Development Authority’s Clean & Green event held in September this year. This year our club will attend the Kick Off and then clean up in the Dicken's Farm Natural Area.
OUR Center Outreach: The OUR Center is a local non-profit dedicated to moving individuals and families toward self-sufficiency. Each year, Twin Peaks Rotary Club purchases, prepares and serves two meals at the OUR Center to those in need. By serving these meals, we not only give back to the community but we also lower the OUR Center’s overall operating costs with our free labor, freeing up funds that the OUR Center can put toward other services. Lunch is served at the OUR Center 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day and requires several Rotarians for two different shifts:
- Shift #1—10:00 AM to 12:00 PM—food prep/cook, serve meals
- Shift #2—12:00-2:00 PM—serve meals, cleanup
Habitat For Humanity: Here's an opportunity for hands on work! Everything from putting up siding, to caulking, to installing molding and windows, painting and the like. Anything it takes to build a house. Members work together at a build in Longmont. Lunch is provided by the club for volunteers, including the future home owner, as well as the Habitat staff. The club's goal is to assist in a build twice a year, in the fall and in the spring.
Humane Society Holiday Giving Trees: Love cats and dogs? Want to help the Humane Society raise funds to ensure their care and adoption? Then you, along with your family and friends have a fun opportunity to get together and make ornaments. The Humane Society provides all of the materials. These ornaments then go to businesses for decorating their Holiday Giving Trees.
Books for Christmas: Please consider donating a gift-wrapped book for young children to be given out by Santa in December.
OUR Valentine: As our Valentine, in February the club collects and gives to the OUR Center toiletries and other personal items that are needed.
4-Way Test Training: This event allows us as civic leaders and business professionals to have a positive impact on the ethical formation of young people’s lives. This community service is held over two days. Volunteers are needed to be a discussion leader with ethical situations using the 4-way test as a guide for one or both days.
Great opportunities for Service Above Self. To participate in the above events, contact our Service Director.
