Local nonprofit seeks volunteers

ACES North America, a humanitarian aid organization, is seeking volunteers who will work locally and in the Dominican Republic.

The needs are varied, and people with all skill levels and interests are welcome to apply.

The major requirement is the desire to serve others.

Locally, there is always a need for people to help with fundraising projects.

These include semi-annual yard sales, food booths and sandwich sales.

“Voluntour” service trips to the Dominican Republic provide a wide variety of opportunities.

Some groups include skilled laborers who work on construction projects, and others offer medical and food outreach programs.

Internship credit is available for university students who wish to have an international experience.

For retirees, the ways to serve are endless, from assisting with the development of new businesses, to teaching English language classes.
