Get Involved - Many Hands Make Light Work!

why volunteer?

Haverford Township has an impressive history of volunteerism and civic engagement.  Our volunteer fire companies have been serving this community for over a century.  The Haverford Township Civic Council, which was established in the 1940's, continues to be a strong force in the community.  Many volunteers each year serve on boards, commissions, and committees with the Township, School District, or one of our many non-profit organizations.  Others see a need and start a new organization to address it.


Some volunteers work with our youth -- as a coach of sports team, a scout leader, in our schools, or in a religious youth group.  Many get their hands dirty by planting trees, clearing trails, beautifying our business districts, or assisting with park improvements.  Others work to help a specific group -- the elderly, people with disabilities, or those dealing with hunger.  


There are opportunities for an ongoing commitment as well as volunteering at a one-day event.  Volunteering is a great way to show gratitude for the blessings you have been given.


The benefits of volunteering are many:  helping others, fostering a sense of community, developing skills and building your resume, creating friendships, and cultivating your sense of well-being.
