"What do you need?" 
"What can I donate to help?" 

Volunteers of America often hears these questions.

There are many things that people in our community need in order to live more fulfilling and successful lives. You can help by picking up a few on your next shopping trip or going through your cupboards and collecting items that are rarely used. If your feeling more ambitious,  organize a drive at your school or church to collect some needed items.

In addition, we always welcome your time. Many of our programs need children, teens, adult volunteers to contribute and improve lives. Financial donations are also very appreciated.
