Volunteerism

Building Social Capital

Volunteers enrich life in our communities and provide services that otherwise might not be available. Whether you’re looking to volunteer or need the services of a voluntary organization, Hunterdon County has plenty to offer.

Fire and emergency medical services in many municipalities are dependent on volunteers. If you don’t have rescue skills, perhaps you can help flip pancakes or fry fish at one of their fundraisers.

Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, 4-H, the YMCA, and ARC are just a few of the many organizations that can use your assistance. Hunterdon County residents are generous with their time, but an extra hand is always welcome.

According to Bonnie Duncan, Area Director of United Way of Hunterdon County, volunteerism is the backbone for good things happening here in Hunterdon County. United Way funds programs for 25 certified member agencies that provide a wide range of services for the community. Working with local businesses, governments, labor and other community organizations, United Way helps foster volunteerism by bringing together people who need help with people who can help.

Whether your passion is to help kids succeed, increase independence for seniors, promote health and wellness, create self-sufficiency for people with disabilities or provide response to personal and community crisis, there is an organization that welcomes your time, talent and energy.
