Volunteers are the backbone of Mizell Center. Our volunteers are dedicated, compassionate and so very much appreciated.  Volunteers provide assistance throughout Mizell Center, including in our resale shop, at our front desk and within our Senior Nutrition Program. 

Our volunteers reflect the diversity of our community, having varied backgrounds, experiences, identities and skills.  As such, our Volunteer Coordinator works closely with each volunteer to provide an experience that best utilizes their time, skills and talents.  

Give the most valuable gift of all…your time.  We look forward to welcoming you
