Many schools and community nonprofits are operating under different hours with required social distancing. All opportunities on this page are for approved hours.
The twenty hour commitment is still required. Ten hours of approved service is required from any of the ongoing opportunities. The twenty hour commitment can be fulfilled by doing all service hours from the ongoing opportunities. Please advise Mrs. Menicucci if you are aware of any other nonprofits looking for community volunteers that might be appropriate for our club. There is a possibility other approved opportunities can be added to this list and made available to all Knights and Ladies as additional opportunities for approved service hours. The other ten hour requirement may be fulfilled as unapproved hours for nonprofit opportunities not listed here.
ONGOING: Nevada Humane Society has several wonderful opportunities. They need volunteers and there are a variety of ways you can help with tasks such as walking the dogs or socializing the cats. Some of the opportunities are less direct hands-on with the animals and all opportunities are designed to make the lives of the animals better. The Humane Society is privately funded and they work in close cooperation with Reno Animal Services. If you care about animals, this is likely to be an opportunity you will truly enjoy.
