Volunteer Your Time and Talent

We love our volunteers!

Oldsmar Cares has a variety of volunteer positions. We have volunteers that commit to coming for one shift a week, others that are “drop-ins” that know our schedule and come when available, and we have off-site volunteers that help with special events, marketing, and fundraising.
