LONG ISLAND CHAPTER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Volunteer In Your Community
Many Long Islanders don’t realize that there is a tremendous need for volunteers that exists right in our own neighborhoods. The economic downturn has only heightened the demand for assistance and, in turn, the need for volunteers. Local nonprofits accomplish amazing results given their limited resources and manpower, but imagine what we could achieve if every Long Islander committed to just a few hours of volunteer work this year. Each of us has something to offer even if it’s not immediately apparent to us.
Of course your Volunteer Committee is always looking for worthy projects where our members can volunteer their time and energy.

JOIN TTN VOLUNTEERS TO HELP DESERVING HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
SELECT A DRESS TO CELEBRATE THEIR SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF HIGH SCHOOL!
TTN members are invited to volunteer for the
sponsored by the Long Island Volunteer Center.
All dresses and accessories are distributed free of charge to girls of families who cannot easily absorb the expense of a new gown for their prom, award ceremony or graduation event.
The young women are selected by their guidance counselors and can attend by invitation only.
Volunteers are needed to set up, sort and organize dresses, shoes, and accessories. On the day of the event, volunteers act as personal shoppers
helping the girls with gown selection, accessories, and in the dressing room. After the girls try on dresses, volunteers return unwanted dresses to the racks. Volunteers assist with alterations, bring out additional inventory and keep the dress racks and shoes neat and organized. You will be on your feet for most of the time, so wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
This has been a most rewarding event for our members.
The smiles and words of appreciation from these girls is so rewarding.
Teamwork makes it happen!
Join us if you can!
