Empowering veterans through permanent housing and supportive services.
Give hope to those who need it most!
Volunteers are the key to our work here at St. Michael’s Veteran Center. We have young and old volunteers, some that come just a few hours per month and some who come several hours per week. We enjoy the support of the Elk Lodge, American Legion and Knights of Columbus Councils, Disabled Vets and other civic organizations that care about St. Michael’s Veteran Center. And, our largest group of volunteers are the residents themselves. These residents know what it means to serve and they are always ready to help any way they can.
You can join the great crew of volunteers, too. If you have an hour or two to spare just call or come down to enroll. We always need extra hands in the food pantry or planning special events. Maybe you have a great idea for our Vets you want to try. Either way, volunteers are the engine of St. Michael’s Veteran Center. Some ideas for how you can give your time at St. Michael’s:
Serve coffee in the on-site coffee shop
Welcome visitors and clients in the welcome center
Organize the community garden planting, watering, weeding and harvesting
Plan off-campus field trips such as fishing, museum visits or sporting games
Manage and market the resident band
Lead exercise activities or organize sporting activities
