Volunteers are an integral part of the success of any nonprofit organization. At Road To Independence and Aurora Bakery we rely heavily on the generous donation of time people give. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to choose from!
Please join us for a volunteer open house on Saturday, September 19, 2020. Join us at the bakery for a tour to learn about our programming and enjoy a treat. After your bakery tour, please join us at the farm to meet our therapy donkeys, learn about our non-riding equine therapy and agricultural programs. With concerns regarding the COVID 19 Pandemic, we will be social distancing, wearing masks, and maintaining small groups at both the bakery and farm.
Volunteer opportunities at the farm include grooming our equine partners, cleaning tack, field and stall cleaning, grounds and fence maintenance, and assisting in our vegetable gardens to name a few. Volunteer tasks at the bakery include counter help, cashier, packaging baked goods, and dishwashing. Also needed are volunteers to assist in our many Community Outreach events such as the Newport Farmers Market, local parades, visits to local residential care facilities, and other community events. Additionally, we can always use help with grant writing, fundraising events and administrative assistance.
Please contact us if you would like us to send you a Volunteer Application, or to set up a private appointment to learn more about our programs offering empowering opportunities to our neighbors with differing abilitites.
