Please contact Jay Poropatich, Communications Director, with any questions ( or 508-647-6476)


  • RATIONALE: Many community members have expressed a strong interest in becoming more aware of all (or most) volunteer organizations, while many volunteer organizations struggle to fill volunteer opportunities.  (idea💡!!)

    • This webpage aims to aggregate volunteer organization information into a simple table with base organization details, the ability to "filter" the table (by criteria), and a link to each organization's website.
  • Town staff is set to update the directory twice annually (incl: recruitment of both new & updated volunteer org information)

    • See survey to provide biannual inputs -
    • Survey submissions will be received on a rolling ("always on") basis
    • Town staff will update the directory twice annually (January & July)
  • In order to qualify, volunteer organizations must need/seek 5+ volunteers (annually).  This allows Town staff to focus its efforts & offer a robust directory to residents
  • This directory is complementary to ServeNatick (an effort led by NHS students) which serves as a dynamic marketplace to match registered volunteers < > specific volunteer opportunities - visit (v. this static directory that is updated bi-annually)
