Volunteering at WHP means getting the opportunity to create and build in a unique community, and you’ll take away an enriching and powerful experience of great mutual benefit. Individuals, families, school and group events have all been part of volunteer activities and have been a great success. We believe that focusing on a collective task is the best way to forget about the differences that can separate us, and can offer us an opportunity to find commonality in creativity and labor.
Want to support a volunteer day and the local economy? For a reasonable fee our local resident chef, can prepare for your group some of the best home made Mexican food in town. Contact us at [email protected] Must be requested in advance.
