KNIB offers volunteer opportunities for all ages (minimum age for some events) and for all kinds of abilities and interests. Confirmation of hours for community service provided on request.

For instance, you could volunteer to:

  • Educate children on the environment by making presentations to adult groups or at schools (training provided)
  • Collect and recycle used metals and electronics at semi-annual drives or at Recycle Centers
  • Pick up litter in your neighborhood as a part of the Spring Great American Cleanup
  • Assist with fund-raising
  • Pick up clothing from rummage sales or thrift shops and deliver to a Recycle Center
  • Assist in our office with data entry, mailings, newsletters, scrapbooks, or filing, etc.
  • Serve as a member of a committee planning one of our programs such as the Golf Play Day
  • Spend 2 hours at either Recycle Center on Saturday morning or Tuesday afternoon in Rockford
  • Collect, peel labels and sort crayons and/or melt and mold into new shapes

KNIB offers flexible volunteer opportunities from many locations for as much time as you have available.
