About Wellesley Volunteers                

Wellesley Volunteers is an initiative designed to bring together Wellesley residents interested in volunteering with Wellesley charitable and other nonprofit organizations or municipal departments and agencies that need volunteers. By utilizing an external website, Wellesley Volunteers enables these groups to publicize their requirements for volunteers and provides these individuals with a central source at which to find meaningful volunteer opportunities.  Wellesley Volunteers was created by a grant from the Fund for Wellesley to promote volunteerism in the town of Wellesley.  The grant, prepared by the Wellesley Volunteers Task Force, is being administered by Wellesley Friendly Aid.
