Weekly Volunteer Opportunities

YOU can MAKE A DIFFERENCE in someone's life TODAY!

Get Involved!

Bridge the Divide

Students go to Cornerstone Farms for a program with special needs children in St. Claire County. Students will work with children as they develop skills and train with horses. BRING A PAIR OF OLD SHOES OR BOOTS, NO FLIP FLOPS!

CAC Days/Nights

In both programs, students go to the Christian Activity Center in East St. Louis.  Students socialize with the children.  The program is a great way to make new friends that you otherwise would never meet, and to make a difference in the lives of East St. Louis children.

Cedar Ridge

Students socialize with the residents and have a lot of fun at this nursing home!

Franklin Tutoring/Arts & Crafts

Franklin Neighborhood Association is a community outreach program.  McKendree volunteers make arts and crafts in an after school program for grade school children in Belleville once a week.

Lebanon Care Center

Students play games with the residents.  It is a great way to make new friends at this local nursing home.

Family Living Center

The Family Living Center in East St. Louis provides emergency housing for homeless families.  Students go to the shelter to play with children so that the parents can have some time to themselves.

Pentecostal Power Church After-School Tutoring

Pentecostal Power Church hosts an after-school program for children in Lebanon of ages five through ten. Volunteers interact with the children by reading books with them, helping them with their homework, and coloring with them.

Stray Rescue

McKendree volunteers visit Stray Rescue each week to help walk dogs, do laundry, housekeeping, and other tasks to assist this wonderful no-kill organization for animals in St. Louis.
