We are so grateful for our volunteers! Below is a description of each of our available volunteer opportunities, with contact information. Our list of events where volunteers are needed is also availlable on Volunteer Match.

Community Cleanup Volunteers

One of our greatest need for volunteers is at our monthly 5 For Friday litter cleanups. So far in 2021, 5 For Friday volunteers have removed around 3 TONS of litter from our environment.

Earth Day Volunteers

Another volunteer opportunity is in April during Earth Month, for Sustainable Sandhills’s Cumberland County Green Schools Earth Day Celebration, which is a two-day event. To inquire about this activity, please email Renée Jones at renee@sustainablesandhills.org.

Carbon Bank Volunteers

Between November and February, we call for volunteers to help count and map our carbon bank and to help us do a random survey so we can calculate the amount of carbon sequestered. To inquire about this activity, please email Renée Jones at renee@sustainablesandhills.org.
