Fall Volunteer Opportunities

Release Date: October 11, 2023

Fall has arrived, kids are back to school, and many volunteer opportunities are available as we approach the holiday season. There are several ways you can help a friend, neighbor, or your community this season. Consider the following:

  • Lighten someone’s load. If you have a neighbor who needs help, volunteer to help them with seasonal preparations; for example, volunteer to remove window air conditioning units or rake their leaves.
  • Get crafty with your harvest. If you have leftover fruits and vegetables from your garden, you can use those to make jellies or jam, or donate them to families in need.
  • Coach kids. As fall and winter sports gear up, local teams are always in need of coaches. If you have the time and desire, you may be able to help. 
  • Support a park near you. Parks around the county need help and rely on volunteers. The National Park Service has a wide range of safe, outdoor volunteer activities, ranging from conducting tours to maintaining green areas or facilities.
  • Clean out your closet. Fall is a great time to get rid of unwanted clothes. You can donate to a shelter, goodwill, or a family in need.

Remember, small positive changes can make a big difference. To find a volunteer opportunity near you, check out serve.gov.
