East Valley city launches community volunteer program

Posted

The town of Queen Creek has launched a centralized community volunteer program.

According to a press release, volunteers donated nearly 84,000 hours of service to the community in 2022.

To help streamline and enhance the opportunities and process, the town has created a centralized volunteer program.

“We so appreciate the time and service our volunteers provide,” stated Queen Creek Mayor Julia Wheatley. “Our residents have such a mix of skills and knowledge; it is exciting to know it will be easier than ever to share those talents! Not only does volunteering increase community engagement, and save taxpayer dollars, it really is hard not to smile when you’re serving!”

The centralized program includes one place to find all town volunteer opportunities, a primary point of contact, background screenings for applicable positions and options for volunteers to provide feedback.

Through the program, the town looks to provide opportunities for volunteers to use and develop new skills, train and provide necessary oversight, and provide applicable information, equipment and materials.

“The town is also committed to providing a safe, positive and friendly environment, while providing recognition and appreciation for volunteers,” the release stated.

Current volunteer opportunities include assisting with events, the Town’s Citizen Leadership Institute, the Senior Program and the Community Emergency Response Team. To view more information about the various opportunities and to sign up, visit QueenCreekAZ.gov/Volunteer.
