Various shifts 9AM – 8PM Thursday through Sunday until Nov 29. Must sign up at www.artsquest.org/volunteer. Contact Cory Stevens, 610-332-1370, cstevens@artsquest.org.


BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS LEHIGH VALLEY needs volunteers for their After School Enrichment Program. At this small group program, volunteers assist Littles with homework and engage in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities and are asked to commit to attending two meetings per month. All program meetings will occur 3:30PM to 5:00PM on Wednesdays from October 2020 to May 2021. Weeks off will follow national holidays. Contact Darby Keller, dkeller@bbbslv.org.


FORGOTTEN FELINES AND FIDOS, INC, Germansville. The shelter house and barn are home to about 150 felines on any given day, so the need to clean food bowls, wash linen, clean litter boxes, etc. is endless and is done daily including weekends and holidays. Some of our animals need to be socialized in a family/home setting, and sometimes we simply run out of space for our animals. An interview may be all that is separating you from a foster pet while we search for a forever family. Contact Mary Ann Schaeffer, 610-737-6851, fffvolunteer@verizon.net.
