Volunteers

How Can you get involved?

We are always looking for Palmetto Place Philanteers! Philanteers are philanthropic volunteers who donate their time, talents or monetary gifts. We have numerous volunteer opportunities for our partners. Many opportunities include:

  • Sponsoring an outing for our children

  • Coming to prepare a meal for our with our youth

  • Interior work

  • Exterior/Landscape work

  • Mentoring

  • Tutoring

  • and much more!

    All volunteers must first attend a volunteer orientation. If groups of 10 or more are planning to volunteer, at least 2 members from the group must attend an orientation. Orientations are held once a month at various locations around the midlands. To register for one of our upcoming (30-minute) orientations, please email Kendra at kendra@palmettoplaceshelter.org . For an up-to-date list of all our volunteer opportunities visit the United Way Volunteer Portal. Because we work with children and teens who go to school in the area, all volunteers must be 18 or older . If you are a part of a youth group looking for opportunities, we have many available for you too!

    We are so thankful for the support from our community and the volunteers who help with tutoring, meals, and activities. Palmetto Place understands the importance of volunteers and the invaluable contributions they make. Volunteers’ time, energy and talents have helped build the home that has helped more than 7,000 children and teens. Without our volunteers, we wouldn't be able to expose our kids to new experiences like beach trips and the rides at Carowinds, our weekends wouldn't be as much fun, and our hearts wouldn't be filled with as much love. When you volunteer, you help make our home a better place and we know it's only through your tireless giving that we are able to keep our hearts and doors open. 

Whether you've got lot's of time or just a big heart, we have an opportunity for everyone.
