Why Volunteer with RICAN?

As a volunteer-run nonprofit, we owe a lot to our dedicated corps of over 70 volunteers. Without your support and hard work, we would not be able to serve our friends and neighbors to the high standard we do now.

Volunteers are welcome, though children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

We offer volunteer hours for casual patrons and mandatory service workers Mon-Fri 9:30 am-3:30 pm
