Looking for ways to volunteer? Citizens of Minneapolis/St. Paul and the greater Twin Cities area have been an invaluable source of support for the Merrick mission for almost 50 years. As a volunteer at Merrick you can contribute as much or as little as you desire. It all depends on what fits with your goals, expertise, interest and time available. Believe us – we are grateful for the time you choose to share! Our volunteers travel from all over the Twin Cities area to lend a hand to a cause they believe in (and we couldn't do what we do without them).
How Can I Volunteer?
When you are generous enough to share your time with us here at Merrick we think it's only right that we're flexible with how you spend your time. We have opportunities at both program sites (Vadnais Heights and North St. Paul) as well as at our various fundraisers.
