Community Bulletin Boards

Does your favorite local café, library or bookstore have a community bulletin board? Let us know! We are always looking for more volunteers at Heart to Heart. You can help us spread the word about the opportunities by getting flyers on these bulletin boards. If you frequent an establishment with space to hang a flyer please get in touch with us. We can give you a flyer to take and hang up (example pictured), or we can send them information directly.

Special Skills

We understand not everyone can or wants to volunteer during our regular weekly shifts, but may still want to contribute to our overall success. Heart to Heart is on the lookout for a few volunteers with specialized skills to help with projects from time to time. Please let us know if you have a particular interest or are skilled in:

  • Woodworking, DIY, Building
  • Social Media
  • Community Advocacy
  • Elementary Education
  • One time assembly projects (eg. birthday bags)

While we may not have a related project in mind at the moment, these are some needs we have encountered over time and we would love to know who might be interested in helping with these things in the future. Have another skill or interest you think may be useful? Let us know!

Welcome Back FC Youth!
