“I love to help other people. That’s why I’ve been volunteering for 36 years!”
“I am a lifelong Kettering resident, and volunteering is my way of paying back some of what I have received. I volunteer not from a sense of obligation but from being grateful.”
“I enjoy the civic involvement and the engagement within our community. It is a labor of love, and an investment of time that takes place in our own back yard.”
“When I leave the Fraze Pavilion after volunteering, I have a pep in my step, a feeling of a job well-done, a feeling of purpose, and a desire to return.”
“As new retirees, we are branching out in new directions, and we love all the fun family activities that Kettering has to offer.”
“There is nothing more gratifying than to give rather than receive. One visit to the Polen Farm Christmas Day Gathering certainly makes that a reality.We feel honored to have been given the opportunity to give back to our Kettering community which we often refer to as ‘our little slice of heaven’.”
“It is so rewarding to reach out and help others.If I weren’t having a great time, I wouldn’t be driving 80 miles round-trip to volunteer!”
Volunteers are truly an essential part of our City. Some volunteers have donated hundreds of hours, others just a few. The volunteer opportunities are flexible to fit your skills and time schedule.
