Maumee Valley Historical Society Seeks Volunteers
The Maumee Valley Historical Society located at the Wolcott Heritage Center is seeking volunteers. There are many volunteer opportunities available to pick from.
Volunteer docents to lead museum visitors through the Wolcott House Museum and grounds, explaining the Wells-Wolcott legacy and the pioneering traditions of the lower Maumee Valley, and hosts to greet visitors at the Wolcott House Museum door are two examples of volunteer opportunities.
Maumee Senior Center Seeks Garden Volunteers
The Maumee Senior Center is in need of “garden angels” or volunteers to tend to the garden located at the center. Approximately three to four individuals are needed to work once a month for 30 minutes through October. The garden has several annual plants, along with herbs and vegetables, which are used for meals that are served at the center. You do not have to be a senior to volunteer.
Those interested may contact Heather Cole at (419) 376-2828 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Host Families Needed For AFS Exchange Students
AFS is looking for host families in Northwest Ohio willing to open their homes to exchange students for the 2019-20 school year. By hosting an AFS exchange student, families help build bridges of intercultural understanding at home and abroad while connecting with an outstanding young person.
Each year, AFS Intercultural Programs/USA welcomes 2,300 high school students from more than 90 countries into communities. Host families provide a bed and meals, share their daily lives with students, and help guide and support students as they would their own children. AFS spends time finding students to match the interests of host families, whether it’s the arts, academics, sports or other interests. Families and hosted students receive ongoing support from AFS staff and experienced, local volunteers.
For more information about how to host a student, study abroad or volunteer with AFS, call (800) AFS-INFO or visit www.afsusa.org.
