Volunteer Opportunities - General
Volunteers give the best gift; themselves. One of Tri-County’s greatest assets is the volunteers that contribute their time and talent to make Tri-County valuable to the clients and the community. While money and materials are essential in providing services through programs of Tri-County Services in Liberty, Montgomery and Walker counties; the heart of our work is people - both the people we serve and the people who help us as volunteers. Volunteers giving their time to our programs receive tremendous rewards in smiles, the looks of pride and hope, the achievements of those they help and the knowledge that they make a difference in helping others work toward brighter tomorrows. Volunteers make things happen for Tri-County. It is with the tremendous positive attitude of volunteers that we can accomplish whatever we set out to do. Volunteering is affective and achievable. Start by helping today.
If you are interested in any of the opportunities below, please contact Sandy Kelly at (936) 521-6100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
