Needs from: United Way of the Cape Fear Area

Volunteer: Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers are needed to assist in all areas of the Club.  Some of our volunteers prefer to work with our members during their daily routine, but some volunteers are able to use their skills to teach or inspire our kids. You don't have to be an expert to help our members.  We need people of all talents and interests, and if you'd rather just help out with homework or join in athletics, we need you too!
