Upcoming & Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities:
Here are some of the upcoming volunteer opportunities currently available to Wheaton students, staff and faculty. If you are interested in participating in or have questions about any of the following, please email SSSR@wheatoncollege.edu.
Norton Public Schools & Head Start Outreach Programs - Thanks to this year's 40+ tutors/volunteers. We'll see you in August! For a comprehensive description of ways you can get more involved in Wheaton's partnerships with Norton Public School and Head Start, please visit the Wheaton Tutoring Outreach page or contact Cassie Peltola in the Chapel Basement..
Greater Boston Food Bank - Sept 12 , 8:15 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. Transportation provided. GBFB provides food for local food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters throughout southeastern Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island. In just one shift, Wheaton volunteers salvage and sort enough food to feed a family of four for one year. Transportation provided. Can't join us? A small financial contribution goes a long way. GBFB buys in bulk, so every dollar they spend buys $4 worth of food.
Food & Friends Soup Kitchen Cooking Night - September 16. Each month, a club, theme house, team -- or a group of dedicated staff members -- cook a healthy meal for 90+ soup kitchen guests. Pots, pans, recipes, groceries and on-campus kitchen provided.
Norton Library Park Fall clean up - Coming in September. Join Professor Emeritus Herb Ellison to clean up after old man winter and get this Norton gem ready for the summer reading season.
Norton Reservoir Bank clean-up - Coming in September. Students and staff will be cleaning up the banks of the Norton reservoir with our partners from Norton Land Preservation Society and Norton Parks and Recreation. This is not a job for the feint of heart, but students loved the sense of satisfaction they experienced at the Fall clean-up and asked for more.
