Now and again we find ourselves with a little spare time or simply the desire to give back to the community. Volunteer opportunities come in all shapes and sizes; a day, an hour, one time only task, or a monthly occurance.  Benton Park West relies on volunteers to get every job done.  If you find yourself with spare time, please considering volunteering.
