Fundraisers and Volunteer Opportunities in Rockland County This Month

Fundraisers and Volunteer Opportunities in Rockland County This Month

Your family can spend a few hours helping the community—either by volunteering or raising money—at these events this month.



Looking for ways to give back to the community by participating in fundraisers and volunteering in Rockland County? You’ve come to the right place! We found fundraising and volunteer opportunities in the area that your whole family can participate in. From helping to clean up parks to walking for a good cause to raising money for local nonprofits and more, you’ll find small, easy ways your family can do some good while having fun! 

And giving back to the community does more than help your neighbors. It helps your family too. In fact, kids should volunteer with their family because they’ll make new friends and connections that can lead to a job or career, gain important skills and experience that will help them later in life, see more of the community and world, build confidence and self-esteem, relieve stress, spend time doing what they care about, and feel like they’re part of a community, according to PBS Kids. 

Is your organization hosting a fundraising or volunteer event in Rockland? Submit the event details to be featured in this article.
