Volunteers Requests by Windham Region No Freeze Project: The No Freeze needs volunteers! There are so many ways you can help us do our life-changing work. We need volunteers to support our seasonal work in the shelter, assist with administrative and organizational tasks throughout the year, provide repair and maintenance expertise, and organize and serve at our fundraising events. Our dedicated board of directors is an all-volunteer group from the Windham region. We are also a service learning site for University of Connecticut and Eastern Connecticut State University students. If you are a student interested in volunteering, please contact your school’s community outreach officer. Call or email for more information.
