Volunteers are always welcome to support our respite program by sharing their many interests and talents.

Our volunteers:

  • Assist members during the day in the meeting room
  • Serve coffee and tea
  • Prepare the lunch room
  • Assist with craft projects
  • Share a special talent like singing, dancing, exercise, etc.

Our respite program volunteers receive thorough and ongoing training. All necessary training is provided.

Event Volunteers

Event volunteers may participate in a planning committee for events such as Dancing with The ARK’s Stars, Race for The ARK, or other special events. We welcome help with mailings; soliciting in-kind donations, supplies, gift cards and silent auction items; and flyer/poster distribution.

Volunteers are needed the day of the event to help with set up, registration, monitoring stations at the race, food preparation, silent auction support, take down, and more.
