Interested in Volunteering?

The Stow Community Chest has an all-volunteer Board of Directors. Local community volunteers keep fundraising and operating costs low so that we can send more money directly to the agencies we support. If you are interested in volunteering to help us, please contact us at any time.

If you are interested in volunteering for one of our agencies, please contact the agency directly.
