National Volunteer Week is April 7th – 13th . How Will You Give Back?

Help Interim Inc. Celebrate National Volunteer Week By Offering Your Time and Talents

Monterey, CA, March 07, 2019 — National Volunteer Week is April 7th – 13th , and Interim Inc. is seeking volunteers from the community to pitch in to help support their valuable services.

Interim is a Monterey-based private nonprofit organization that provides support services, housing and treatment for adults with mental illness in Monterey County.

Volunteering has long been a popular activity in the U.S. Each year millions of people give their time and talents without any compensation. While people volunteer to help others, they also get something in return.

A growing body of research has established a strong relationship between volunteering and health: those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.”

Interim has a number of volunteer opportunities available to members of the community, for example, group cooking projects. Many of our clients benefit from having prepared frozen meals accessible, so it’s nice to have a group of volunteers to prepare and package individual entrees. You can schedule a weekend cooking project with your club, congregation or co-workers.

If you are a gardener and would like to donate your time, the garden and greenhouse at Shelter Cove need tending during the spring and summer months. Volunteers who can help Interim clients with planting, weeding and harvesting are greatly appreciated!

Our Voices and OMNI Resource Center would love to offer a wider range of classes. If you can teach a four-to eight-week class in yoga, art, Spanish, or cooking, we’d love to hear from you.

To inquire about volunteer opportunities with Interim Inc., contact the Development Office at (831) 649-4522, ext. 205.
