TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Family Resource Center of Truckee (FRCoT) is seeking volunteers ages 16 to 99 to serve within their agency and programs. The FRCoT is a nonprofit agency devoted to supporting and assisting families and individuals to accomplish self-selected goals and overcome challenges.
Their mission is to promote social and economic success in the community by providing education, mobilizing resources and advocating for change. Fulfilling this mission depends on staff, community partners and volunteers. Since programming is diverse, FRCoT volunteers have the opportunity to utilize skill sets and serve in a way that is most interesting to them.
Currently, volunteers work with families and children in the Family Room at Truckee Elementary School and monthly Family Fun Nights. Volunteers also work closely with the legal staff, help run the reception area and serve as a first point of contact for clients.
FRCoT volunteer Irene Schneller said, “Volunteering for the FRC these past four years has truly enriched my life. Not only do I see, from the ground level, the results of many interventions made by all of our staff to our diverse client population, but it becomes enormously gratifying to me to have played a small role in such positive outcomes. The opportunity to use my Spanish skills is an added bonus, both as front desk receptionist and facilitator for the Tax-Aide Program. I am truly blessed to be a part of the FRC family!”
FRCoT are looking for committed and enthusiastic volunteers who can volunteer in a variety of different capacities. If you are interested in volunteering, check out the FRCoT volunteer information meeting on Thursday, May 30, 5:30 p.m. at the Family Resource Center of Truckee, 11695 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, next to the KidZone Museum. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information on the Family Resource Center of Truckee visit www.truckeefrc.org.
