Volunteer Opportunities: Paint; Sort Food; Childcare

If you want to give back to the Waukesha County community, and locally as well, here are a few ways you can help.

To sign up for any of these volunteer opportunities or to learn more about volunteering, check out the United Way Volunteer Center. The following volunteer opportunities are available through the , and right here at home:

Stamp Out Hunger-Food Sorter: Salvation Army
Volunteers are needed to unload bags and boxes of groceries from trucks and vans delivering them to The Salvation Army during the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on May 12 from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers will also sort food into appropriate categories. Sorting will be done outside under tents, so please dress for the weather. Some volunteers must be able to lift at least 30 pounds; some volunteers will be just sorting food and not doing as much lifting.

Interior Painter needed for properties: Hebron House Of Hospitality, Inc.
Several permanent housing locations and homeless shelters are in need of a good paint job. New paint really helps the guests and clients feel better! We have a very minimal budget for supplies and paint, so a donation of such would be very helpful as well.

Special Needs Teacher's Assistant: Children's Community Center
Volunteer help is needed at our childcare center working one-on-one with a preschool child with additional challenges. The volunteer will shadow the student, giving extra help where ever needed with planned activities, social time, outdoor play, art and field trips. Volunteers need to be able to commit to at least two mornings a week from 9 a.m. to noon.

Videographer: Good Friend, Inc.
If you know your way around a digital video camera, have some video editing software or access to it, and can put together a DVD of clips for a novel marketing piece, we'd love to talk to you! We do student and staff trainings regarding autism and are looking to create a video brochure. Tasks would involve recording four types of our presentations (each for about an hour), doing a few on-camera interviews, and editing some existing video together for separate clips accessible from a front menu. This is a great opportunity to expand your portfolio and gain experience!

Muskego Food Pantry Always Looking for Hands

Every Thursday, and twice a month on Saturdays, the Muskego Food Pantry is assisting at least 60 families who arrive to the pantry for food and household items. Collection and arrangement of food takes many hands, and if you're interested, please contact the food pantry at 262-679-6448.

I would like to add that the Muskego Historical Society is looking for volunteers on an on-going basis. For more information, please see the website: www.muskegohistory.org
