Virtual volunteering is a convenient way to help Monroe Harding and all those that we serve. As we transition to a safer in-person environment we will continue to offer virtual and in-person volunteering opportunities. There are many different types of fun tasks that can be done remotely to let your skills shine!
As we settle into the semi-virtual school environment, many of our children, teens, and young adults need additional support. We need people who can tutor in various subjects from practicing site words and multiplication tables with younger kids, to high school math and English. There also is the occasional need for specific tutors in college courses like accounting, foreign languages, and science. The time commitment and subject will vary based on your availability and schedule.
Cooking Class Supply Kits
We are looking for donors and volunteers to provide the class meal kits. The class size is 10-12 people and preparation involves shopping for the ingredients and diving it up into proportioned packages. We provide the recipe and shopping list. This could be done with individuals or a group.
Art Class Supply Kits
We request art kits for the young adults to have at home for use during the class. The supplies include the following items: graphite pencils, erasers, black ink pens, charcoal sticks, paintbrushes, watercolor palettes and/or acrylic paints, fine tip markers, scissors, glue, ruler, colored pencils, and sketch books. We provide the supply list.
Outdoor Group Volunteering
As the seasons change, we are always in need of groups to help us improve the curb appeal of our Independent Living homes. This could include planting bushes, laying grass seed, mowing, pruning bushes, power washing, laying mulch, etc.
Similar to outdoor maintenance needed at Monroe Harding’s Independent Living homes, our Foster Families are always in need of
assistance with outdoor work. With family being the first focus, it can be a balancing act to keep up with all the responsibilities of a home. Tasks are specific to each family.
Social Media sharing and support
Monroe Harding would love for our good news and resiliency of our youth to be spread far and wide.

Do you have access to a truck, van or other large vehicle? We have a wide variety of needs to serve our clients, sometimes that means picking up or delivering larger items. If would not mind helping staff with a variety of transportation needs for materials, please let us know the general access schedule and type of vehicle.
The above opportunities are consistent activities we have at this time, but there are always other opportunities that come up that may not be listed. To volunteer or request more information, contact:
