The Cane Ridge Community Club, located at 6043 Cane Ridge Rd in Antioch, TN has several volunteer opportunities. We have a small container garden which incorporates historical artifacts from our community; this space needs work/preparation year round (we will provide tools). We also have regular evening community meetings in which we can use help setting up, tearing down, managing name-tags and sign-in sheets and more.

We also would like pairs of students to plan a meeting for the community (your choice –what do we need to know about you?) During the summer, we do several cook-outs and other fun events for which we need assistance. Other opportunities include helping re-draw message boards, meeting new neighbors, assisting with Christmas Parade participation, organizing supplies, helping people inside, documenting meetings with photographs and posting them to our social media, interviewing residents and documenting their stories and more. If you have a passion for something you want to give, we’ll find a way to use it so long as it benefits the community. A connected community is a safer community. Credited times are generally a minimum of four hours per visit.

Please contact caneridgecommunityclub@gmail.com or call 615-497-2981 if you are interested in volunteering for this non-profit all-volunteer historical organization.

PAWS

Ongoing Opportunity!!

We have been thrilled and honored to work with students from Rutherford County and surrounding areas here at PAWS. To ensure everyone's safety, one of our policies is that before a student may volunteer at PAWS, they must attend a one-time volunteer orientation (last no longer than an hour). We generally hold them once a month, on the 3rd Thursday of every month.

All volunteer information can be found on our website: here.  We have a special orientation day coming up this Thursday if students would like to attend... due to construction August orientation will be closed, so this one will be the best opportunity to get into the program for students before the school year begins. PAWS would love to have TN Promise students here to help. We already have quite a few with us, and they are truly some great volunteers!
