Volunteer Program

  

Thank you for  your interest in volunteering!  Volunteers are vital to our program.  New Life  Beginnings could not be where it is today without the many amazing volunteers  that have helped us out.  You can volunteer individually, bring a friend, make it  a family event, or bring a group from school or church.

Events

Help organize and carry out annual events. Join an event planning committee.   Help us decorate.  Help us sell tickets.  These are some ways you can help out  with our events.  Groups are always welcome to volunteer at events!

Office Volunteer

Half-day shifts from 9 am-1 pm and 1 pm-5 pm.  File, answer phones, complete phone intakes for prospective clients, and work on side projects as time  permits.

Thrift Shop Volunteer

Any given day in the thrift shop, you’ll sort through clothing and other donated  items, price items, and help keep the whole store tidy and clean.  We have special need for volunteers during our big sales, which include the Blowout Sale, Dollar Sale, and Much More.
