Find Volunteer Opportunities and Fun Family Events!

Join Goodwill Industries of West MI, Muskegon/Ottawa Great Start Collaboratives and Parent Coalitions, and United Way of the Lakeshore to sort books for kids! We will be sorting children's books from the collection hoppers at Goodwill Industries. Volunteers clean the donated children's books so that they can be given to children for free in Goodwill Stores and at community events! It is a ton of fun, and is an easy way to make sure our littlest readers are prepared for school! Register today for our upcoming dates:

  • March 15, 3-5 PM
  • April 5, 2-4 PM
  • May 3, 3-5 PM
  • June 7, 2-4 PM
