Are you looking for something to do in your free time?

Then consider volunteering.

It's a great way to meet your neighbors while helping the Midvale community.

Three opportunities near our Midvale, Utah apartments include:

Humane Society of Utah

Founded in 1960, the Humane Society of Utah is the state's largest private-admission shelter. It saves over 10,000 animals every year and provides humane education about responsible pet care. The animals stay at the shelter until they find a loving home. In addition to cats and dogs, it also houses rabbits in the bunny bungalows.

The Humane Society depends on its volunteers for an array of crucial tasks. Duties can include greeting guests, walking dogs, and behavior training. 

American Red Cross of Utah 

The American Red Cross of Utah serves over 2.8 million people. There are four locations, including one in nearby Provo. The Utah Red Cross has served the state for more than a century. It began in 1898 when a group of women prepared meals and comfort kits for soldiers serving in the Spanish-American War. Today, the organization provides food, shelter, and clothing during emergencies. 

Volunteer are always welcome. They respond to disasters or support active military members through the Service to Armed Forces program. 

Wheeler Historic Farm

Step back in time at the Wheeler Historic Farm. It dates back to the 1850s, and is where people can spend the day on a working farm. Visitors can enjoy wagon rides and see several original buildings. The farmhouse was built in the Victorian style, and its artifacts depict the domestic side of farm life between 1890 and 1940. 

The volunteer opportunities are available by contacting the farm. They're based on need and one's interests.
