Special Volunteer Opportunities

Ele’s Place needs occasional help with various types of special projects. These projects include: 

Fundraising Event Volunteers (Ann Arbor, Flint, Grand Rapids, and Lansing)
These volunteers help with a variety of needs, depending on the event.  (Examples include: registration, set-up and clean-up duties, serving refreshments.)

Garden Care Volunteers (Lansing location only)
These volunteers provide gardening skills for the grounds of Ele's Place in Lansing. People with experience in horticulture or gardening are encouraged to consider this opportunity. Assist in the maintenance of the outdoor flowerbeds, yard and general landscaping of Ele's Place. This position is seasonal - spring through fall, planting, weeding, pruning, etc. as needed.

Building Care Volunteers (Lansing location only)
These volunteers provide assistance with painting and/or minor building repairs. People who have experience with electrical, plumbing, or basic handyman skills are very helpful in this role. These volunteers serve on an "on-call" basis and are contacted when needed to assist with various building care and maintenance needs.

We prefer to have adult volunteers help with most of these assignments, but mature teens (16 and older) are welcome to assist.
