Volunteers are the backbone of every community. Without volunteers many organizations and departments wouldn't be able to operate at the capacity in which they do. For example, if parents simply didn't want to volunteer as coaches, snack stand vendors, apparel coordinators and officials many sports teams wouldn't be able to play. That's just the tip of the volunteer iceberg.
When volunteers come out in force the community benefits in various ways. Not only do residents get to pay less in taxes due to volunteers, they also get to experience different events that might not be held if volunteers didn't make themselves available as part of the staff.
There are plenty of different ways to volunteer your time in our own town of Cinnaminson if you are looking for a way to give back to the community. For starters, the Cinnaminson Fire Department is always looking for volunteers. There are a handful of different membership types: firefighter, EMT, EMR, fire police, and special contributing member. You can also volunteer as a member of the Community Emergency Response Team, CERT, which helps the Tri-Boro during mass casualty incidents, storms, and other events.
If you are looking to volunteer outside of the emergency services you can spend time volunteering as a coach for one of the township's sports groups. There are plenty of sports to choose from so you shouldn't have trouble finding a sport you like.
To go along with athletics, the Cinnaminson Parks & Recreation Department hosts an annual park clean up day. The 2018 park clean up day is scheduled for Saturday, March 24 from 9-11 am at all of the parks in Cinnaminson. Anyone can volunteer their time and tools to help clean up the park near their neighborhood on the annual park clean up day.
There are plenty of other ways to volunteer if you are looking to give back to Cinnaminson or the community in which you live. Volunteers are always need at local polling places whenever public votes are held. Volunteers are also needed at local churches to collect donation items for clothing and food drives, clean up the property, and assist churchgoers at mass.
