Volunteer your time!


Give a gift of time

At OLDF we take pride in the commitment and dedication of our Volunteers, and we’d love to count you among them!

Whether it’s teaching a child to read or visiting a senior, you can make an incredible difference in the lives of others through volunteering. Our volunteers are of all ages, ethnic and racial backgrounds and experiences. They share a commitment to our community. There are lots of ways for you to get involved.
