Volunteers are absolutely vital to EOC’s mission. It is only when we work together that we can make a real difference in our community. We are always looking for volunteers for a variety of positions. But are also open to your suggestions! If you have a specialty skill (marketing, photography, construction) that you’d like to offer, please let us know!
For more information about volunteering, please contact Angelo Calbone (518) 288-3206 ext. 137 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
