Members of our community volunteer for several reasons. Some volunteer because they want to make a difference and support the programs sponsored by the Carefree Kiwanis Club which supports children in the North Scottsdale / Carefree / Cave Creek area. Others volunteer looking to make new friends and create a sense of belonging.
Marketplace Volunteers do not have to be Kiwanis Club Members to volunteer at the Marketplace.
Only about a third of the 19,000 yearly volunteer hours donated are by Kiwanis Club Members. We encourage Volunteers to work at the Marketplace as often as they like. We are very flexible and accommodating to everyone!
Volunteers are needed during our business hours, Tues – Sat, 9 am -4 pm. Generally, volunteers will work a 4 hour morning or afternoon shift, yet we welcome whatever amount of time you can give.
Several Volunteer Appreciation Parties are held throughout the year for recognition of Volunteer efforts. Volunteers are encouraged to attend our parties and to bring a friend or family member. Most Appreciation Parties are held at the Marketplace and are a lot of fun and a great place to make another new friend!
