ACO Encourages and supports our youngest volunteers!

Volunteers of all ages are important to the success of ACO, and we recognize that today’s young volunteers are our adult volunteer leadership for the future. While there are age limits on volunteer opportunities on locations at ACO, there are some creative ideas to help support the organization in your own neighborhood, with friends and family.

Here are some ways that kids can make an impact in the lives of other kids less fortunate.

  • Hold a lemonade stand, bake sale, garage sale or other ideas to raise money to help our mission
  • Have a birthday or holiday party and ask guests to donate to ACO instead of giving a gift (they can make cash donations, or bring items for our food pantry or care & share household items program- see more information on our “Ways To Give” under the “Get Involved” tab)
  • Donate gently used toys, clothes, shoes and books to ACO Resale Shop
  • Hold a food drive, coat drive, shoe drive or blue jean drive in your neighborhood
  • Follow us on Facebook to learn and join in on all the fun community events that sponsor or benefit ACO

*Student Volunteers must be of high school age to work independently on site at ACO locations. With permission from the Volunteer Director, students 12 and older may work alongside a parent on site at ACO. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to volunteer onsite due to safety reasons. For more details on volunteer opportunities, go here.
