Community Volunteer Month
Presented by Gloucester Resource Council in partnership
with Gloucester Community Engagement
During April 2017, the Gloucester Resource Council is inviting community members of all ages to “BEE INVOLVED” and “BEE OF SERVICE” to others by connecting with an organization needing worker bees!
Volunteers in Gloucester support and assist many local organizations that are doing wonderful work in our community. By delivering meals, mentoring a youth, assisting adults with reading, providing non-emergency medical transportation, caring for pets waiting for adoption, picking up litter, coaching a youth team, assisting with basic home repairs, bettering our parks, recycling to help cancer patients, or 101 other varied and interesting opportunities, you will BEE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
