Interested in a Truly ENRICHING Volunteer or Intern Experience?
Both Hinds' Feet Farm locations (Huntersville and Asheville) offer a one-of-a-kind truly rewarding opportunity for individuals who really want to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Our unique, member-driven, community-based program derives its strength and efficacy from creating, and engaging the power of the community - not just the community of members and staff, but also by engaging with you - members of the community-at-large.
Community Volunteers and Interns are an important and integral part of our program!
What do I need to volunteer?
- An open mind
- A generous spirit
- A willingness to share and participate (ie: NO EXPERIENCE or special talents/skills necessary!)
The Greatest Gift you can give as a volunteer is the gift of yourself and your time - you will be amazed at how eager our members are to make new friends and acquaintances!
