Getting volunteer hours is a lot easier than you may think. There are many opportunities to help out around your community. One popular community service activity people like to do is volunteer at the local animal shelter. The Animal Shelter Society Inc. is located at 1430 Newark road, Zanesville. They are open from 10am-5:30 pm on Monday through Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturdays. However, they are closed on Sundays.
Another great way to accumulate volunteer hours is by going to Christ’s Table. Christ Table is located in Zanesville. Christ’s table is a religious organization that helps provide food for those who cannot afford it at the time. While there, volunteers help distribute food to those who need it. They also help clean up after everything is done that day.
The high school also offers a lot of volunteer hour opportunities. During basketball season, the school is in search for people who are willing to help pick up the gymnasium after home games are over. It is a fast and easy was to start gathering up hours for NHS. The school also looks for people to setup and teardown equipment that is used for concerts held at the school for the choir, orchestra, and band programs.
