The mission of the Columbus County Volunteer Center is to provide a resource center for the coordination of volunteer programs and activities to improve the lives of the people in Columbus County. The Volunteer Center provides excellent opportunities for families to make a difference in their community. The Volunteer Center works with unaffiliated volunteers, Boy Scouts seeking Eagle projects, students enhancing their resumes, SCC service-learning students and high school students completing community service requirements.
RSVP volunteers work in literacy, nutrition, and independent living. They provide food and clothes to the needy, teach children to read, deliver hot meals to seniors, or bring smiles to home bound residents. The volunteer determines how much time to give and to which assignments. The volunteers are able to give back to the community their time and talents. Columbus County is fortunate to have one of the 700 local programs nationwide, and one of the 17 in NC.
