Happy Thanksgiving • Volunteering Oppertunities

Posted on 11/16/2022

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Sylmar Neighborhood Council.

This is the time of year when we gather in giving thanks. A wonderful way to give that thanks is to volunteer to help someone else. Of course, this is not the only time of year that people need our help, so just know that there are many ways for individuals and groups to get involved, you can volunteer to help someone else at any time throughout the year.

Here is a list of 20 volunteer opportunities in and around Los Angeles.

Please note that many if not all of the listed locations/opportunities will require a Pre-Registration to volunteer either on their website or via telephone.
