“We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.”
The Volunteer Program is an integral part of Ellis Memorial and draws people from the private as well as the public sector of the city. We have formed partnerships with many corporations, schools, and neighbors. They work with all of our programs serving as adult role models for the children and caring companions for our adults. They volunteer in areas such as tutoring the children; assisting in the classroom; arts & crafts projects; chaperoning on field trips; and much more.
