INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

​1. Does your teacher or coach need assistance around the school?  Help that teacher or coach and receive hours.

2. The Gwinnett Co-Op needs your help!  Volunteers (over 16-years-of-age) can work in the food pantry or thrift store, clean, landscape, sort & stock donations.  You can also earn hours with your donations (clothing, toys, toiletries, pasta, sauces, canned fruit, tuna, peanut butter and jelly, boxed meals, hot cereals, soups, laundry detergent, dish detergent, size 3-5 diapers, deodorant, toothpaste, and soap). 

3. Gwinnett Children's Shelter always needs volunteers to work on their property.  Get a small group together to clean, landscape, paint, etc. so the shelter can be warm and inviting for kids who need help during a tough life situation.  The professionals at the shelter will customize the project to the size of your group and make sure everyone has a great volunteer experience.

4. Sack Kids Hunger at Buford First Methodist Church serves food to kids every Saturday from 12-2.  Choose a few Beta friends, a Saturday when you can serve from 11:30-2:00, and bring your hours sheet with you on the day you serve.  

5. Find your own service opportunity at a local church, school, shelter, blood drive, donation center, food kitchen, or other non-profit organization.  Then tell us about it so Beta Club can make a difference there as well!
