MFRC Volunteer Opportunities

The volunteer program at the Trenton MFRC is meant to enhance the day-to-day functioning of the Centre and to support all the programs and services we offer. It is also meant to offer members of our community an opportunity to be involved in their MFRC, to share skills, ideas, and knowledge. Volunteering offers newcomers an opportunity to meet new friends and to get connected. There are also opportunities for students to volunteer and log hours toward the community involvement requirement for school.

Our volunteer opportunities are very diverse and if we don’t currently have what you want, let us know. Your ideas and suggestions are always welcome. We anticipate a need for volunteers to assist with the following activities, however, the list is subject to change and additions.
