As we seek to carry out the mission of Boys & Girls Harbor, one of our most valuable resources is our volunteers. Through our volunteer program, there are many opportunities for individuals, clubs or civic groups, corporations, and churches. The Harbor offers a variety of projects that are tailored to a volunteer's time and talents -- there is a fit for everyone!



There are many ways to support the work of Boys & Girls Harbor, including both direct financial support (operating support, capital gifts, and planned gifts) and in-kind gifts (clothing, athletic equipment, food, milk, etc.). The Harbor's Development Office will be glad to answer your questions and provide further information regarding specific opportunities for giving.
