Volunteer Information

Volunteers are a key asset to Edgerton Community Outreach’s success.  Volunteers help in the Thrift Store (sorting donations, pricing donations, toy department, cashiering), Food Pantry, The Breakfast Program, as mentors, and with ECO’s seasonal programs.  Each year over 12,000 volunteer hours are logged for ECO activities.  We want your volunteer experience to be meaningful to you so we strive to pair you with an activity that matches your talents with the work and mission of Edgerton Community Outreach.  

New volunteers are asked to contact Tanya Bennett, ECO’s Thrift Store Coordinator/Volunteer Contact at 608-921-9578/ 608-884-9593 or outreachbennett@gmail.com.  Tanya will meet with new volunteers to explain volunteer opportunities and set up training times.  ECO also works with youth volunteers.  All youth volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent sign a permission slip prior to volunteering at ECO.  Youth volunteers 13 years of age or younger must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
