Great Volunteer Opportunities in the Terryville Area

At Terryville Chevrolet, we believe in giving back to our community — a belief we’ve backed up by donating to more than 20 local charities and nonprofits. Volunteering in Terryville is another great way to give back, and here are three of the many organizations in the area that could use your time.

Plymouth Community Food Pantry

Dedicated to fighting hunger in the Plymouth/Terryville area, the Plymouth Community Food Pantry opens its doors three times a week to members of the community in need of sustenance. A few hours a week, volunteers are needed to help stock and hand out items.

Animal Rescue Foundation

Terryville’s Animal Rescue Foundation is a nonprofit, non-destroy shelter devoted to rescuing and caring for the community’s stray, abandoned, and abused cats and dogs. Volunteers are frequently needed at ARF (get it?) to help feed, clean, and play with the animals.

Miracle League of Connecticut

Located in nearby Bristol, the Miracle League of Connecticut centers its mission on the belief that “every child deserves a chance to play.” This nonprofit gives kids with physical and cognitive challenges a chance to enjoy sports and recreation in a safe, accessible way. Volunteers here can buddy up with a child, help staff special events, or help train new bicycle riders at the annual iCan Bike summer camp.

To learn more, get in touch with one of these organizations and ask how you can help — you’ll be glad you did!

The beautiful shoreline can be enjoyed year-round. In the winter, visit a resort like Saybrook Point Inn and enjoy relaxing spa services matched with delicious food and breathtaking views.

In Connecticut, we can almost always guarantee snow in the winter. This means, it is a great place to hit the slopes. Try one of the state’s great ski resorts including Ski Sundown, Mount Southington, Mohawk Mountain, and Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort.
