Volunteer Opportunities

Why Volunteer? 

You want to make a meaningful difference in your community. You have time or talents to share. You want to give back. You want to help enrich others’ lives.

Whatever your personal reason, Linden Resources is excited to hear from you. Because you can make a difference – not just in your community – but in the lives of hundreds of individuals with disabilities and wounded warriors our organization serves each year. Whether an hour a week, or strictly a one-time-event, we welcome you and honor your willingness to share your time and talents.
