If you are a Greenfield resident, you know that our community is full of compassionate and caring people. We are proud to say that there is a large number of non-profits located right here in Greenfield, and many more in the surrounding areas. As the time of year is approaching when we all begin to think a little more about gratitude and giving, we have rounded up a list of great Greenfield Indiana volunteer opportunities so that you and your family can give back to your local community this season.

Greenfield Indiana (and Surrounding) Volunteer Opportunities

Animal lovers will want to check out Agape East , which is always looking for weekly volunteers to help with side-walking, horse handling and keeping of the grounds and stables to help maintain their program and property. Group volunteer opportunities are available as well. Also, the Hancock County Humane Society is run entirely by volunteers who help to care for animals, clean cages and maintain facilities and work on fundraisers. Visit their Web site today to submit an online application.

Dani’s Dreams, located in New Palestine, is committed to bringing communities together and offering great children’s programming. Volunteer positions include presenters who are comfortable speaking and educating groups, marketing and communications help and students who can commit to being a student teacher or work on a service project. They also have room for group or corporate workplace volunteers. Another great place to volunteer to help the children of our community is Zoey’s Place. Check out their Web site and contact their board for more opportunities and information. 

Volunteering to help seniors is a wonderful thing to do to help our community. You can help out through the organization Hancock County Senior Services, which offers a variety of volunteer opportunities, including weekly check-ins and phone calls, maintenance projects, and even office jobs such as helping with fundraising events. Additionally, you can help more at risk populations by visiting The Landing Place Web site and contacting them directly.

The Hancock County Food Pantry is always looking for volunteers, and although what they need has changed based on COVID-19, you can still contact them to find out their current openings! Likewise, if you are interested in helping other hungry populations in our community, the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen is another great place to volunteer as is Meals On Wheels of Hancock County.

Would you like to volunteer to make Greenfield a more aesthetically beautiful place? Try reaching out to Regreening Greenfield, a local organization dedicated to planting trees and creating beauty in landscaping. Additionally, Greenfield Main Street is always looking for people who would like to make their community a better place through volunteering to plan events and make a difference locally. If you visit their Web site, you can find out more information and then fill out a contact form if you are interested!

Make sure to check out any and all of these great non-profits this season. With so many opportunities to volunteer available, it is no wonder that Greenfield is a vibrant and caring community. We can continue this trend by having our citizens, like you, reach out and lend a helping hand! Thank you Greenfield!
