VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AT FORT MCCOY!

Thank you to everyone who is interested in volunteering their time, skills, and compassionate nature in providing service to our new Afghan neighbors currently living at Fort McCoy. We need a lot of help over the next few months!

We currently operate:
•  Three Women and Children Centers
•  Two Sewing Centers
•  One Learning Center for children and young adults and supporting over six local centers around the base
•  One Legal Center
•  Six Indoor Recreational Centers for children and adults

Former Camp Counselors, Retired School Teachers, Physical Education Teachers or Coaches, Social Workers, Compassionate Community Members...What ever your talent or skill, WE NEED YOU!!

Whether you are able to give one day per week for the next few months or able to commit to one total week, WE HAVE A SPOT FOR YOU! What becomes difficult is trying to piece meal schedules of only a few hours here or there or only one or two days of the next six months. Our volunteers need to help us offer consistency to those we are serving. We need up to 100 volunteers per day so trying to work around various schedules is difficult.

In the last month, we received an enormous response from the community wanting to serve our Afghan guests. While this is amazing, we are trying to respond to each one. We are giving priority to those who are able to offer a larger time commitment to this project. Your patience is appreciated, if you have already signed up and have not heard from us and are able to volunteer, please reach out to info@cclse.org.

If you have a church group, student group, business or organization that would like to send groups of volunteers, we would love to work with you! Please contact us directly at info@cclse.org. We are happy to answer your questions and will meet with you to help you through the process.

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES WITH SORTING DONATIONS

If you are only able to give a day or afternoon, we will still be needing your help as we sort through and continue to pack donations for delivery. Please join with us in keeping all we serve in prayer.
