From working with animals in pet shelters and helping put on events to mentoring kids and feeding the hungry, Corpus Christi volunteers are needed in every capacity imaginable.
While every organization needs donations and help with fundraisers, they also need people power. Several environmental and beautification organizations seek volunteers to help clean parks and beaches.
Animal shelters need people to clean, feed and play with lost pets or animals looking for forever homes. You can even foster kittens and puppies in your own home!
Cultural organizations such as theaters need actors, ticket takers, costume designers and lighting techs. Museums need docents, office helpers and period re-enactors.
The city of Corpus Christi uses volunteers in a variety of areas, including working with seniors, children and the police.
For those who want to be behind the scenes of the many events held in Corpus Christi, you can volunteer to work at Buc Days, Fiesta de la Flor, Festival of the Arts and the Harbor Lights Festival. Information about what is needed and where to volunteer can be found in the interactive icons above (just click or touch!) or in the volunteer calendar on the righthand side of the page.
Health organizations looking for volunteers include the American Cancer Society, Coastal Bend Blood Center, Mission of Mercy and more.
