Volunteer Listing Is Growing

Print More

In the May, Observer issue, we published a partial list of local organizations that welcome volunteers. As we were reminded by readers, there are others that we did not include that are equally deserving of being recognized as fine places to volunteer – actually many, many, others. The list we chose from had more than 60 entries. Aside from the fact that there was not enough time to update all that information, the Observer could not accommodate a list that long.

Our plan was, and is, to publish a permanent list on the Observer’s website at https://thesuffieldobserver.com/local-organizations-that-welcome-volunteers/, which ultimately will include all of the others. For each organization, the website version adds two more pieces of information (a Facebook link and a mailing address) to the six items listed in the May Observer (name, description of volunteer activities, contact name, contact phone, email and website). The original version with one new addition is already on the website under the blue tab “Local Organizations That Welcome Volunteers.”

The Observer has agreed to publish, each month, a small listing of the remaining groups as we finish updating their information. The first of these is below.

If you are a member of any such organization that has not yet appeared in the paper or on its website, please contact us with your favorite group’s current information (eight items listed above). We do need to get authorization for publication from anyone whose name or other personal information is to be listed. The best contact is Ruth Zimmerman at 860-833-7525 or ruthzimm@aol.com.
