Graphic designer

Assistance is needed designing invitations, flyers and posters for a nonprofit working in support of animals.

Book buddy

A Book buddy is needed for a library patron who lives off of Highway 49, two miles from Combie and Wolf roads. Book buddies become a friend to someone who is housebound and cannot get to the library. The buddy selects books, tapes and videos for their friend and delivers them to their home once or twice a month.

Special events


A nonprofit counseling center needs a coordinator for one or more upcoming events. The volunteer should have organization, communication and community networking skills. These activities can be done from home.


There are many nonprofit agencies that would benefit with some assistance with their filing. These are very flexible positions, and volunteers can pick the time and days that work best for them.
