This week is National Volunteer Week, and a number of area organizations offer opportunities to volunteer throughout the year. Nonprofit groups that work to help the homeless, animals, children and families as well as organizations that promote literacy, education and the arts are seeking donations and volunteer assistance.
1960 Hope Center seeks volunteers for its facility on FM 1960, which offers assistance and resources to the homeless. The facility opened in October. Volunteers can use the group’s website to sign up for tasks, including housekeeping, laundry and serving as receptionists. Additional tasks include data entry, mentoring and teaching classes.
