The Woodlands is well known for being a place that stays with you. By adding “voluntourism” to your meeting plans you can ensure that a little bit of your attendees’ generosity and giving spirit will stay in The Woodlands!
Voluntourism is the practice of volunteering while traveling for both business and pleasure. Finding fun, unique, and budget-friendly group activities can sometimes be challenging. By volunteering outside of your event your attendees will enjoy benefits such as positive team building, helping those in need, and supporting causes they care about. As companies strive to strengthen their commitment to service, volunteering helps put their values into practice.
With over 100 non-profit organizations in The Woodlands area, our team will likely be able to connect you with the organization that is the perfect fit for your groups schedule and interests. Here are a few organizations to consider:
THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY FOOD BANK
The Montgomery County Food Bank serves over 65,000 Woodlands neighbors in need each month. They rely on volunteers to staff mobile food markets, for food distribution to vulnerable seniors, and to sort donations. They offer daily volunteer opportunities for groups of all sizes. Volunteering at the Montgomery County Food Bank helps to nourish families in need while you nourish your soul!
INTERFAITH OF THE WOODLANDS
Since 1973 Interfaith of The Woodlands programs have been uplifting and supporting neighbors in need. Does your group have a green thumb, or love the outdoors? They will be right at home in the Veggie Village community garden which provides fresh, organic produce to the Interfaith Food Pantry and Senior Living complexes. Other Interfaith programs that welcome volunteers are their Food Pantry, Senior Services, and the Hand Me Up Shop, their resale store.
THE WOODLANDS TOWNSHIP
Volunteer opportunities also abound through The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation department. Be sure to check the Township's website for current opportunities, as new events are regularly added.
Voluntourism adds a memorable, personal touch to your event. Your attendee’s generosity with their time and talents will continue to enrich The Woodlands community long after your event calls it a wrap! The Sales team at Visit The Woodlands is here to assist you in connecting with non-profits of every interest. Reach out to our Sales and Servicing Coordinator, Julie Quinn, to learn more.
