“Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time, they just have the heart.”

Giving back to the community helps make Storm Lake a great place to live, work and play. Working together, we can achieve wonderful things.

Why volunteer? Not only do we gain a cleaner, healthier community – those who serve others live a happy, purposeful life. The projects are important, but the engagement and involvement are priceless.

Where do you fit in? Cleaning parks or beaches? Planting trees or flower beds? Helping at community events? Sharing your talent through public art or music? We have a role to fit your interests. New ideas for projects and service are welcome. Donations for public improvements are always appreciated.
