Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity that is open to all of us. There are a variety of opportunities throughout American Fork City, from serving on a Board or Commission to participating as a volunteer in the community.
JustServe.org is a website where the volunteer needs of organizations are posted, and volunteers search for opportunities to enhance the quality of life in the community. JustServe is a free service that links community volunteer needs with volunteers. At JustServe, the focus is on the power of community service and volunteering to build unity in the community. On the site you can search to find local volunteering organizations in American Fork City.
Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels needs volunteer drivers 1 day a week, for 1 hour, in a limited delivery radius from American Fork Senior Center. Volunteers use their own vehicle to pick up the food at the Senior Center and deliver meals to the elderly, ill, frail, or disabled seniors in their homes. Visit here to learn more on how to volunteer.
Outdoor Parks Maintenance
The Parks and Recreation Committee has identified a number of service opportunities to help keep our cities parks and outdoor areas looking nice through digging rings around the trees, placing mulch to keep the weeds and grass down, and picking up trash in public areas. To learn more about these opportunities, contact Jason Thomson, Parks Superintendent, at 801-763-3060.
