Are you looking for ways to make a difference in your community? Volunteering is an excellent way to get involved and help out those in need. Clark County offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds. From assisting at the 78th Street Heritage Farm to participating in the Watershed Alliance of Southwest Washington's annual day of service, there are plenty of ways to get involved and make a difference. The 78th Street Heritage Farm pays tribute to the legacy of civil rights leader, Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. The day that falls on the third Monday of January is dedicated to his memory. Volunteers aged 18 or older must sign a Clark County public works liability waiver before taking part in any volunteer activity. The Clark County Food Bank manages more than 8 million pounds of food each year, which equates to 6.7 million meals for individuals and families in need.
We collaborate with 53 nonprofit partner agencies at 130 distribution sites, along with programs run by food banks, to serve those facing food insecurity throughout Clark County. Every dollar you donate goes directly towards hunger relief initiatives for families and vulnerable people in Clark County. The Clark County Public Works volunteer program engages the community in meaningful volunteer experiences that improve community assets, such as parks and roads. Local Clark County organizations will also organize ways to celebrate and participate in the National Day of Service. For those who enjoy being outdoors and want to take part in community service, the Watershed Alliance of Southwest Washington, in partnership with Odyssey World International Education Services, organizes its annual day of service.
