How To Help


Volunteering with CISS

There are a multitude of ways to help out. Some of the simplest ways are to collect our top need items and bring them to the center or help serve lunch. Volunteers can help on projects, committees or if you’re only able to offer a day of service, we always have things to do and are grateful for your time.
