One of the best things about St. Joseph’s Villa is that we are always buzzing with activity. Special events, field trips, fundraisers, and other newsworthy items keep us on our toes. Fortunately, we have an incredible team of volunteers that works hard to support what we do. We have more than 55 people who serve the campus each week, and more than 750 volunteers have offered their help over the past year.
As the holiday season fast approaches, our need for volunteers continues as we prepare for special events. For those interested in helping, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
One opportunity for volunteers is to become a docent. Docents are responsible for answering the phone, greeting visitors, and answering general questions about St. Joseph’s Villa. Administrative Assistant positions are also available in several offices on campus for individuals who are interested in volunteering in an office setting. Volunteers will help perform various tasks such as maintaining client files, copying, scanning, answering the phone, and preparing information such as admission packets. All volunteers will receive training for their position.
As fall draws closer, we’d like to thank all of our summer volunteers who did such a wonderful job assisting us in our camp classrooms. Stay tuned for more information about volunteer positions throughout the fall.
Also remember that even if you don’t have time to volunteer, there are other ways you can help. St. Joseph’s Villa accepts donations online as well as donated goods at our donation center. Some items we need include dish sets, serving bowls and platters, eating utensils, floral arrangements, office furniture, framed artwork, and clothing. Every little bit helps, and we thank you for your time and donations.
