Why I Volunteer

volunteer coach cheers on team

"I love to be around people who have the courage to do something new. Then there is the icing on the cake - being surprised by meeting each other in Barnes and Noble … the library … their place of employment. Coming upon such friends unexpectedly makes me love and feel more at home in Fort Collins." - Grace R.

Ted the volunteer

"I have enjoyed volunteering at TRC tremendously. The physical nature of the work, always having something to do, is great. The people are invariably pleasant, and lots have thanked me for being there. So far, a very satisfying experience." - Ted W.
