By volunteering, either as a regular volunteer or as a volunteer on a special project, you can make a difference for those in need. For some Vinnies’ volunteers, this is a chance to give something back to the community, to use their skills and experience in ways that make a difference in the lives of people who need their help. For others, it is a chance to learn new skills and to get experience in a supportive environment.
