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.

Now is your chance... MAKE A DIFFERENCE, VOLUNTEER!

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.

Believe in Arcadia... Volunteer!

Image result for fruit for all

Fruit For All, a non-profit community harvest group organized and run by Arcadia High School students and brothers Zach and Jackson Selby, were honored with the "Believe in Arcadia....Volunteer!" Award. Starting out as a way to do something productive with the excess fruit from their trees at their home, Fruit For All volunteers have since picked over 34,000 pounds of fruit that is given to local food banks and rescue missions.


The volunteers of Foothill Unity Center received the "Believe in Arcadia.....Volunteer!" Award for their many efforts to assist families in Arcadia and our surrounding communities.
