Volunteer Center of Greene County is funded by the Corporation for National & Community Services with a match from Generations of Vincennes University.
Greene County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter looking for animal lovers. Anyone 15 years of age or older is welcome. Dog walkers are at the top of the list! Whether you have an extra 30 minutes once a week or can come by daily, the dogs love to be taken for walks to burn off some energy and to get some fresh air. There are also animals that could use some one-on-one attention. When neglected or abused animals are brought into the shelter, they are often scared of everyone. A little extra time and attention is needed to help these animals learn to trust again. All of the animals need to play and socialize, and help with bathing the animals is always appreciated. The shelter is open Tuesday-Saturday 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.
Build A Basket is an award winning volunteer program and a wonderful way to give during the holiday season. Fill a basket with household items for a homebound client at Christmas time.

Shakamak Good Samaritan Retirement Community is looking for anyone with a heart to help the elderly or has a talent to share at the Jasonville Retirement Community. At any time, volunteers may read to, or visit with residents. Day or evening Men’s and Women’s Group leaders are also needed. The residents participate in crafts on Friday afternoons and would enjoy extra help, or if you have a craft of your own that you would like to share, you are encouraged to do so. If you have a musical talent, there are opportunities throughout the day to share your talent that would be enjoyed greatly by the residents. Bingo volunteers are also needed; Bingo is also very popular with the residents and is played daily (4pm M-F and 3pm on Sat-Sun).
