Sanctuary One Volunteer Week
Sanctuary One is proud to launch its first Volunteer Week. While we always have volunteer opportunities throughout the year (over 3000 hours served in 2016 alone!), we feel that partnering with Points of Light allows us the opportunity to highlight and celebrate the amazing community Sanctuary One is a part of in the Rogue Valley. The National Volunteer Week theme this year is Service Unites. Sanctuary One couldn’t agree more. Our motto is People, Animals, and the Earth: Better Together. Through our myriad of volunteers and service learning folks, we know that service unites people, of all walks of life. We celebrate our generous Rogue Valley neighbors in all that they’ve done together to create and sustain Sanctuary One.
With 55 acres and over sixty animals, it takes a lot of work to keep our care farm running! We need you!
We encourage volunteer teams to join us one, or more days, for the week of April 23-28. Saturday April 29th will mark our opening of public Farm Tour season. We will have major projects to tackle on the farm each day from 10-2, with lunch served. In helping Sanctuary One, you not only help animals we’ve rescued and are preparing for their forever homes, you’re helping a multitude of other nonprofits Sanctuary One serves, like veteran groups, children’s groups, and more.
Join us for lunch, get an event t-shirt, make a difference in our community, and build meaningful memories with your team!
What type of projects are there?
Building toys for our animals
Animal grooming, socialization, and playing
Managing blackberry bramble
Shoveling, mucking, hauling, and more!
About Sanctuary One
Sanctuary One is a care farm dedicated to rescuing domestic and farm animals, facilitating health and wellness for people, and promoting environmental stewardship. We believe that a farm can do more than grow food for people's bellies; it can heal our bodies and lift our spirits, too, if we work together with animals and the earth for mutual healing.
At Sanctuary One, people of all ages have the opportunity to volunteer on a real working farm and experience nature’s healing power firsthand. We offer educational tours that open people’s hearts and minds. We invite groups from schools and youth-serving nonprofit organizations to visit the farm for fresh air, exercise and hands-on service-learning. We help teens who are in legal trouble learn how to make better choices. We mentor interns who dream of becoming the next generation of care farmers. We promote the ethics of mindful, sustainable living. And we provide a safe, loving home to rescued farm animals and pets.
