You've heard the saying, "There is a time and a place for everything". Well, the time and place for volunteering is now and always. No matter what you're interested in - - music, the environment, supporting people who are struggling, working for a number of different charitable events, outdoor activities, caring for children, and so much more, the Helpline Center can connect you with a volunteer opportunity you will love.

Here are just a few of the events and organizations which could use a helping hand this week:

  • Samaritan's Feet "Back-to-School" Distribution - Saturday, August 17, from 9 AM to 12 noon. Samaritan's Feet is hosting this event at 3 locations across Sioux Falls. You'll be helping to fit children in Kindergarten through 5th grade with shoes and socks.
