Volunteer opportunities for Kenmore Club members
Part of the mission of the Kenmore Community Club is to increase participation in the Kenmore Community by its members. To that end we continually post volunteer opportunities for members to join in and help make Kenmore a better place to live.
There are many ways to help and most of our members say that volunteering often gives them a much greater sense of fulfillment for the time they give.
They enjoy meeting others in the community and learning more about the city they live in. Some opportunities require a long-term commitment, but many offer short, periodic commitments of only a couple of hours or so.
