Volunteer Opportunities

There are many volunteer opportunities in Winfield, as well as many people who are willing to share their time and their talents.  However it is often hard for individuals wanting to volunteer to find the opportunities they are looking for. The Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce wants to help close this gap.

This location will offer a common place where non-profits and organizations can list their needs for volunteer help.  People who are looking for volunteer opportunities can access this site and find one that suits them best.
