Volunteers


Volunteers have always been at the heart of the work the Mary Lyon Foundation does. Whether distributing food in the early days of the COVID-19 crisis, or donating baked goods and helping out at a fundraiser, or serving on our Board of Trustees, volunteers fill many roles.

Janice, bake saleDo you have skills you would like to share? Here are some areas where volunteering would make a difference:  taking minutes at board meetings; helping in the office and with planning events; assisting with website maintenance (WordPress); helping with our computer system, data entry and mailing list management (Excel and Word), branding, and fundraising; or serving on a board or subcommittee.

We welcome your interest and thank all those who have given so much time and talent to the foundation since its beginnings almost 30 years ago.

To talk about volunteer opportunities, please call Executive Director, Susan Samoriski, at 413-625-2555 or email her at marylyonfoundation@gmail.com.
