Volunteers enhance the quality of life in Moon Township by contributing their time, energy and talents to many projects, programs and events. Individuals and businesses as well as civic, school and social groups provide a vital service while making a difference in the lives of friends, neighbors and the community. Without this stewardship, it would be impossible for the municipal staff to deliver many of the services that make Moon Township a great place to live, learn, work and play.
Moon Township aims to provide opportunities for service designed to improve the well-being of the volunteer and the community we serve. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Some opportunities to help include:
