Why Volunteer Idaho Panhandle?
Bonner County Volunteer Network
Sandpoint Community Resource Center (SCRC) continues to bridge the gap between those in need and those who serve and recognizes how valuable a role volunteers can play in organizations' and non profits' ability to meet those needs. Volunteer Idaho Panhandle (VIP) is about having one central place where volunteers can go to get connected with volunteer opportunities. This can be done either face to face or through VolunteerMatch.org. We believe that if we can make it easier for individuals and groups to find their perfect volunteer match that the untapped reservoir of talent and energy in our community can be unleashed. Check out the easy ways to connect below.

In an emergency, natural disaster, or public health incident, volunteers with the right training are invaluable.
Volunteers are needed all across Idaho
Do you have a heart for helping the community, but don't have a lot of time? Do you want to teach your children how to give back? Need flexible volunteer opportunities? Natalie Larson, longtime Sandpoint resident and busy working mother, created Bonner County Volunteer Network (BCVN), with these considerations in mind.
BCVN schedules community service projects one Saturday every month. Like a flash mob, the events are posted on its Facebook page, and anyone can show up to help. The events are family friendly, require no training, no special skills, and there is no paperwork to fill out. Making it so easy gives those who normally don't volunteer, the opportunity to do so.
Recent projects have included removing the linoleum at the Panhandle Animal Shelter, cleaning up the Bay Trail, and helping out at Creations. May's service project will be at Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue. Volunteers will help the rescue operation get ready for the fawns by cleaning out the pens and fixing up the stalls.
