Centro greatly appreciates the men and women, boys and girls who contribute their time and energy to further our mission in the community. Centro has volunteer opportunities to match everyone’s interest, experiences, and schedule. Most volunteer assignments require no previous experience but may require someone who is bilingual, but not all. Opportunities exist to help staff with special events, organize and stock our emergency food pantry, and assist with special projects.
Call Cheryl Wilkins or Jose Ares for volunteer opportunities at (847) 695-9050
