Current Volunteer Opportunities:

Address Open House Invitations

Our Development Office is coordinating an Open House to welcome new and longtime friends of The Samaritan Women to meet our staff and learn about our local and national programs. We are looking for a volunteer with exceptional handwriting to address personal invitations for the Open House. This project will take about 2 hours to complete and take place in early to mid-September.

Donor Gratitude

Our Development Office expresses gratitude often to our generous and thoughtful donors. We are looking for several friendly volunteers with neat handwriting and/or strong verbal communication skills who are available on a weekly basis, especially during November, December, and January. Tasks primarily include handwriting thank you notes and making thank you calls to donors.

Office Aid

When it comes to volunteering in our office, no task is too small. The Samaritan Women welcomes detail-oriented volunteers with daytime availability who can bless our mission by supporting our staff with clerical needs. Tasks may include scanning files, addressing envelopes, writing thank you cards, and organizing materials. This is a flexible opportunity during our office hours: Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm.

Salon Challenge Phone Calls

The Samaritan Women is partnering with salons to participate in our “Your New Look, Her New Life” Salon Challenge. We are looking for a volunteer who enjoys speaking on the phone in a friendly and welcoming manner. This project is making phone calls to pre-identified salons to introduce The Samaritan Women and garner interest in charitable fundraising by participating in our Salon Challenge.

Salon Challenge Research

The Samaritan Women is partnering with salons to participate in our “Your New Look, Her New Life” Salon Challenge. We are looking for a research savvy volunteer who would like to help identify salons and day spas in Maryland. This project is searching for salons and day spas that follow specific criteria and listing them in an excel spreadsheet that will be used to make phone calls to garner interest in charitable fundraising for The Samaritan Women.
