Local Volunteer Opportunities
As a member of GBANA you love your neighborhood and want to only make it better, whether this is through area cleanup programs, initiatives to help neighbors in need or other types of service that goes a long way. To help harness the spirit of sharing and generosity, we are going to try to make it as easy as possible for members to locate and participate in local volunteer opportunities.
Please feel free to share this page with other groups. In addition, if you are part of another group that would be interested in a joint community effort, please contact Racheal at Racheal.GBANA@gmail.com.
