Spring into Volunteering

It may not feel like it lately with snow falling earlier this week but Spring has finally arrived here in Fairfield County. At VolunteerSquare one of the things we love best about this season is a fresh crop of volunteer opportunities many of them outdoors. Shake off those winter blues and get out and enjoy the start of a new season by helping your community!

If your time is limited to a particular week, see if you can find one-day opportunities that will get you out to enjoy the great outdoors! For instance Earthplace in Westport is looking for helping hands repairing their outdoor kiosks and they need folks to spruce up some trails.

Spring cleaning is also on deck at many local nonprofits. In Stamford at Laurel House you can pop in for an afternoon to help sort and display donations at their thrift store. In Bridgeport the folks at LifeBridge need extra hands in their Community Closet. Or head to Darien and sign up for a shift or two at the Person-to-Person clothing center
