Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer and a member of our Red String family. When people inquire about volunteering at Red String, many are amazed at how widespread the need is for the benefits that our charitable grants provide and how easy it is to become a volunteer. Because we work with a variety of charities supporting a wide range of programs focusing on education, community support, and senior services, our volunteers get unique opportunities to work with a diversity of community charity organizations and projects. When people come to Red String to help, they are often surprised to realize the exponential benefits that the foundation's grants and projects can have to both our charity partners and the communities that they serve.
At Red String, volunteers experience the personal satisfaction that comes from helping the neighborhoods and communities that the foundation invests in and from understanding that their personal effort has made a difference in the daily lives of children, families, and seniors who are struggling and need a helping hand. Whether you help out in one of our volunteer opportunities, or participate in other ways, you’ll become part of the spirit and energy that enables us to serve so many.
We offer a variety of opportunities both in person and virtual to get involved in nearly every aspect of our operations, including fundraising and event planning support, program support, product development support, and administration support.
