At OCDC we recognize that volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. By joining us, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Make a Real Impact: Whether you’re assisting with local events, supporting community initiatives, or participating in outreach programs, your efforts directly contribute to positive change in our community.

No matter your interests or availability, there’s a volunteer opportunity for you at OCDC. Some of our current volunteer opportunities include:
- Event Assistance: Help us plan and execute exciting events that bring our community together. Whether it’s a fundraiser, festival, or workshop, we need enthusiastic volunteers to assist with various tasks such as setup, registration, and cleanup.
- Food Drive Assistance: Food insecurity remains a pressing issue for many, volunteering for food drive assistance holds profound significance. Each week, volunteers generously devote their time to aid in packaging fresh meat, chicken, pork, and various other food items as they are acquired. This act of service transcends mere philanthropy; it embodies the essence of community support and compassion.
Volunteering once or twice a week for food drive assistance provides invaluable assistance to those in need. By contributing to the packaging process, volunteers directly impact the accessibility of nutritious food for individuals and families facing food insecurity. Through their dedication, they play a pivotal role in ensuring that essential food items reach those who require them the most.
- Community Outreach: Join our outreach team to spread the word about our organization and its initiatives. From distributing flyers to engaging with community members on social media, your efforts will help us reach more people and make a greater impact.
- Environmental Stewardship: If you’re passionate about protecting the environment, consider joining our environmental stewardship programs. Help us organize clean-up events, plant trees, and promote sustainable practices within our community.
- Tutoring and Mentoring: Make a difference in the lives of local youth by becoming a tutor or mentor. Whether you’re helping with homework, providing guidance, or simply lending a listening ear, your support can have a profound impact on a young person’s life.
- Administrative Support: If you prefer working behind the scenes, consider volunteering your time to provide administrative support. From data entry to answering phones, your assistance helps keep our organization running smoothly.
