Group Volunteer Needs:
Empties for Animals
MHHS invites groups and organizations to volunteer with us on an ongoing fundraising project to help the homeless animals of the Capital Region. You can hold a bottle drive and deliver the cans and bottles to us. You can also volunteer at the shelter outside on our grounds to help sort donated recyclable bottles and cans. You and your group can even collect cans and bottles then do the sorting. This is a great team-building opportunity, as well as a way to support a nonprofit organization in your neighborhood.
Letters and Mailings
Throughout the year, volunteer groups are needed to address and stuff envelopes for mass mailings.
If your group is from a specialized business or your group members have a particular talent (like carpentry, for example), please contact the to discuss possible ways to work on a project for the Society.
