Do you like to Organize? Throw parties? Decorate? Cook or bake? Work with tools? Talk on the phone? Sing? Are you good with details? Put your talents to good use!
Volunteers are a very important to the Bonifas Arts Center. Volunteers help us make events, classes, and exhibits happen – and help us stretch the donations of our community. Volunteers hang art, organize art supplies, assist students and instructors in large classes, install software, make play-dough for our toddler class, provide delicious snacks for events, organize our library, and sing or play in our Friday Night Live events. Each one of us has talents and contributions to make.
If you’d like to meet new friends, help children achieve, work for a good cause, and have fun – consider volunteering at the Bonifas Arts Center. Contact Kate, Pasqua, or Sue at 906-786-3833.
By donating your time and talent to the Bonifas Arts Center, you are shaping the kind of community you want to live in. Volunteering creates a healthy community BUT it can benefit YOUR health as well.
Did you know that current research has established a strong relationship between volunteering and health? Those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.

Are you a young adult entering the workforce? Volunteer experience looks great on your resume. According to Jane Finkle, a career consultant and founder of Career Visions, “Volunteer experience demonstrates your interest in building community and the likelihood that you will be a good citizen in the workplace.”
Every year the Bonifas celebrates their volunteers by providing them brunch and a gift at the annual Volunteer Appreciation.
We greatly appreciate all our volunteers and all that they do for us. We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for their hard work and dedication.
