Current Volunteer Needs

  • Adventures in Learning Committee needs members who have ideas for interesting speakers/topics.  Members contact and then introduce speakers.
  • Could you help develop and keep current Shepherd’s Center Facebook and Web Page, or share your computer skills?    
  • Help is also needed for promotion, marketing, picture taking and fundraising.
  • Adventures in Learning sessions run smoothly as volunteers help with name tags, setting up for lunch, greeting participants and even cleaning up.
  • The Coffee Café relies on volunteers for providing snacks as well as set up.
  • Could you staff the Shepherd’s Center office for a 3-hour shift, morning or afternoon.  This involves answering the telephone and performing other tasks as outlined.
  • Needed are thinkers, planners and doers.  Let Judy Castor, Volunteer Coordinator, know that you want to be involved (Phone:  316 680-1214), or contact the Shepherd’s Center office (Phone: 316 721-2208).
