Ways to get involved


Volunteering is a wonderful way for people with common interests to connect on a social level. It’s fun and fulfilling to contribute to a great cause when you feel a sense of community .

Administrative volunteers:

Assist with thank you letters,  database entry, computer work, grant research, note takers and more!

Event volunteers:

Golf outings, 5K Walk/Run, Partner Events (Clearbrook and local schools), Farmer's Market and Frontier Days.  We are always in need of volunteers for these events. 

Group volunteers:

Have a group interested in volunteering together?  Do you work at a company that provides financial support for your volunteer time?  Be a Team with Impact, make a difference and have fun in the process.  Please contact us with questions and ideas. The more the better! 

Trades and Services:

Our success rests in the spirit, skills and trades of our terrific community partners and their friends and family.  We are looking to secure an ongoing webmaster and social media volunteer. We need  future help in building trades (plumbing, electric, general construction and more).  


Help spread awareness with some Gerry's Cafe Swag!
