Want to Volunteer with A Simple Gesture Greensboro?

A Simple Gesture depends on volunteers for nearly everything we do. If you are interested in helping with anything from office work, recruiting new donors, fundraising or anything between, let us know! Our goal is to match volunteers and their passion and talent to needs that we have.

We are always looking for committed and passionate people to work with.

Complete the volunteer form and we will get you a coffee and discuss how you could be a great fit!

  • Why do we ask for your address? So our volunteer drivers can deliver your green bag and pick it up when it's full.
    Did you hear about from the coupon book, Talk of the Town? For every new sign up we get from Talk of the Town, we will receive a $5 donation!
