Volunteers are an important link to our community and are integral to our mission and the important work that we do in northern Michigan. We invite you to read about our volunteer positions and opportunities below and become a part of this amazing team!
Event Volunteers help with various fundraising and community events throughout the year. These volunteers are important connectors between CFS and our community and work with a smile.
Clerical Office Volunteers assist staff with data entry, mailing materials, and other office tasks based on the need. These volunteers must have an interest in supporting CFS activities and a pleasant demeanor.
Office Projects Volunteers assist staff with taking inventory and organizing donation and client supplies. This may include compiling emergency duffle bags or back packs and other general office projects. These volunteers must have an interest in supporting CFS activities and a pleasant demeanor.
Paper Angels volunteers help answer the phone and represent the agency in matching donors with Christmas wish lists. This includes answering the phone, copying, faxing, mailing and tracking wish lists. These volunteers must have a big smile, warm heart and good communication skills.
Because of the nature of the confidential care being delivered by our agency, a select group of experienced CFS volunteers may be invited to assist with client support groups. This level of volunteering requires a commitment to an on-going, regular schedule for an extended period of time. The placement process includes a background check, an application and an interview with CFS staff members. These volunteer assignments are made by the careful matching of client needs with the skills and interests of the volunteer.
