April is National Volunteer Month!#
The power of people working together can bring about monumental changes. National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 with the goal of shining a light on the power of volunteers to transform the world. National Volunteer Month is an extension of National Volunteer Week and allows us more time to celebrate the valuable work you do to make Fort Collins an extraordinary community.

Become a Branch Manager!
The City of Fort Collins seeks willing volunteers who want to help their neighbors with tree branch removal in response to the damage left by the March snowstorm. Volunteers will be assigned in pairs to neighbors who face challenges tending to branch removal and need one-time assistance. Volunteers should have access to reliable vehicle. Access to a trailer and hand tools are helpful, but not required.
FC Volunteers contribute over 150,000 hours per year with an annual economic impact of $3.9 million for our City. Almost 11,000 people volunteered for the City of Fort Collins in 2019. The top three departments for volunteer hours include Recreation, Police Service and Parks.
