Volunteerism is at the heart of Arcadia!
In addition to being the “community of homes,” Arcadia has long been known for having a large and dedicated base of volunteers who devote numerous hours to the City organization, to our schools, and to many civic and charitable organizations. Volunteers have made a difference and strengthened our community in many ways and it would not be the same place without such a strong commitment to giving back.
Volunteers of all ages and talent are needed. You might not be able to give 10 hours a week, but maybe you can give two, and those two hours will make a difference! People who see their friends volunteer often become enthused about getting involved themselves. Kids who see their parents volunteer learn how important it is and they are more likely to continue the effort as they grow up.
Now is your chance... MAKE A DIFFERENCE, VOLUNTEER!
