Get Involved: Volunteering Opportunities in Your Community
Volunteering is an important part of any community. It provides a way for people to give back and make a positive impact on their local area. Whether you’re looking to make a difference in your own backyard or get involved in something bigger, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in your community. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Local charities are always looking for volunteers to help out with their programs and services. From food banks and homeless shelters to animal rescue organizations, there are many ways to lend a hand. You can also look for opportunities with national charities that have local chapters or branches. Check with your local United Way or other nonprofit organizations for more information about volunteering opportunities in your area.
Many communities host events throughout the year that need volunteers. These can range from small neighborhood festivals to large-scale events like marathons and parades. Volunteering at these events is a great way to meet new people and get involved in your community. You can also look for volunteer opportunities at local schools, libraries, and other public spaces.
There are plenty of online resources available for finding volunteering opportunities in your area. Sites like VolunteerMatch allow you to search for local volunteer positions by keyword or location. You can also find volunteer opportunities through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as through community bulletin boards or newsletters.
No matter how you choose to get involved, volunteering is an excellent way to make a difference in your community and give back to those who need it most. With so many options available, there’s sure to be something that fits your interests and skillset. So take the time to explore the possibilities and find the perfect opportunity for you.

The Township has several opportunities where assistance is needed, which include the following:
- Great American Cleanup – Every spring Anderson residents, community groups, and businesses gather on a Saturday in late April, from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., and help is needed to help pick up litter along Anderson roadways and beautify our community, before gathering for a picnic lunch back at Anderson Center.
- Anderson Township Independence Day Parade – Celebrate Hometown Pride, the annual Anderson Parade theme and celebrate the USA by participating in planning activities or parade preparation for this annual event, which is held each July 4th at 11:00 a.m. along Beechmont Avenue.
- The Anderson Township History Room – Anderson’s history is on display in the Township’s History Room, located in Anderson Center, and docents are needed to make this space open to the public on Tuesday evenings, and Wednesday and Sunday afternoons.
In addition to these events, the Anderson Township Park District, which is a separate organization but one that we work very closely with, has volunteer opportunities and more information can be found at Volunteer Opportunities at Anderson Park District (andersonparks.com)
