Spectrum Community Service Opportunities

Community Outreach Mission

The purpose of Spectrum's Community Service Opportunities is to empower and to unify our communities through service, education, and action.

What counts as Community Service?
  • Spectrum Community Service is intended for you to volunteer your services to someone in need.
  • Raking, shoveling, mowing for a neighbor, childcare at a church, working at a food shelf, etc. counts as Community Outreach.
What does not count as Community Service?
  • Spectrum Community Service oppotunities is not an activity in which you receive compensation or pay.

Please explore below for a selection of current opportunities to serve our community!

Good Day,

I hope you are doing well and I thank you and your school for your past help with the Nowthen Heritage Festival. 

In addition to our fall festival we hold a Spring Breakfast Fundraiser at Nowthen Alliance Church at the corners of County Roads 5 & 22.  This year's date is Saturday, April 4th. I am hoping you can help us out with some volunteers.
I'm looking for the following help:

Friday, April 3 - 6pm - 8:30pm (could be done earlier depending on how many volunteers there are)
Set up the church: set tables and serving stations, prepare clearing carts and fill gift bags for kids
Saturday, April 4 - 7:30am - 12:30pm. This time can also be split into 2 shifts 7:30- 10:30 and 9:30-12:30 or however long someone can work,

The students would rotate between serving food, clearing and setting tables, washing dishes (auto dishwasher) and handing out kids gift bags.  

I try to stay with 3 or 4 hour shifts, however, I can work with most anything as long as I know in advance.  As far as the number of volunteers, I can guarantee anyone who signs up will be assigned duties.  Each student will be provided with breakfast.

If you have questions e-mail, call or text. 


More information can also be found on our website http://www.nowthenheritagefestival.com/

Thank you for your continued support.

Hello, my name is Darlene Anderson and I’m the Life Enrichment Director at Elk River Senior Living. Elk River Senior Living opened this summer and we are excited to be part of the community.

We have residents moving in and we’re becoming more and more active.  I’m writing to let you know we may be able to help some students if they need Volunteer Service Credits.

Some of the ideas would be to have students assist with activities such as Ice Cream Socials, table Games, walks outside, read to a senior, maybe some can play an instrument or sing.

Students that are interested in volunteering are welcome to contact us, whether they need credits or not

Thank you,

Darlene Anderson
