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.

Here’s how your family can help raise money and volunteer for various causes in Rockland County this month:

75th Anniversary Auction FREE

WHEN: Sep. 12 - 30, Mondays-Saturdays, 11am-4pm
WHERE: RoCA Rockland Center for the Arts, 27 S. Greenbush Road, West Nyack, NY

Rockland Center for the Arts (RoCA) will be celebrating it’s 75th milestone anniversary and its commitment to the arts, education and the cultural enrichment of the community with its 75th Gala Auction of 75 artworks from Rockland’s leading artists. RoCA’s illustrious story began in 1946, when a progressive group of dreamers and realists came together as a way of re-energizing after the war. This progressive group consisted of Helen Hayes, Kurt Weill, Burgess Meredith and Aaron Copland, Lotte Lenya, Henry Varnum Poor, Maurice Heaton, Maxwell Anderson, Paulette Goddard, and Guthrie McClintic. Having already received widespread acclaim both nationally and abroad, their hope was that they would find a true home for their locally made art, of a caliber rarely seen outside of NYC, so that it could be shared with the surrounding communities. The RoCA Founders group offered a continuous parade of programs in painting, drawing, music, ceramics, dancing and writing that continues to this day. RoCA has since added the Children’s Summer Arts Camp and a variety of outreach programs to seniors and Rockland district schools.
