Do You Have Any Open Days/Times That You Can Always Use Volunteers?
Center of Hope is open Monday – Thursday from 10AM – 2PM. During these hours of operation, there are many different opportunities to serve. Because the Center is primarily made up of volunteers, they are scheduled ahead of time so we know we are covered in specific areas. We typically do not have open days/times where we can use volunteers that haven’t been previously scheduled. If you do want to volunteer and haven’t been scheduled, it is always best to call ahead and see if we have any projects/areas that need to be covered. The person to contact would be Jane Wilsky at 817-594-0266 ext. 310.
