Museums, including the Swart-Wilcox House Museum in Oneonta, the Hanford Mills Museum in East Meredith and the Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, welcome helpers.
Educational assistance can be given with Literacy Volunteers in Chenango, Delaware and Otsego counties, as well as Pathfinder Village School and Catskill Regional Teacher Center.
Health- and human-service groups — such as Catskill Area Hospice, LEAF Council on Alcoholism/Addictions, Springbrook, the Family Service Association, Catholic Charities of Delaware and Otsego Counties and local hospitals — also seek assistance.
The Daily Star often includes a list of area volunteer opportunities in our Community section. The listings include contact information and more ways to help others.
There is never a bad time to make contributions to our area in big ways or small. Your assistance could change your life and those you encounter for the better.
