The DWR Center is now home to 16 nonprofit organizations and it always seems like there is an organization planning an activity or event. It is no wonder that people walk into the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center because they want to volunteer. Many of the resident organizations do need volunteers while others do not. But most prospective volunteers also want to know where they will fit best or if there is an organization with a need they are passionate about.
Here is the Volunteer Wish List for DWR Center residents along with mission statements. Agencies that currently do not need volunteers have not been included.
