The Helpline Center has served the Sioux Empire for almost 50 years, providing critical volunteer services to its citizens and agencies through its Volunteer Connections program. Volunteer Connections makes that link between community members who want to give back and the agencies that need volunteers. 

Do-It-Yourself Volunteer Projects are perfect for groups, families, and clubs to give back in a meaningful way. This is a great option to complete during a family gathering or on your own. You can choose from our list of 40+ project options at: Once completed, the projects can be dropped off or mailed to area nonprofits. 

Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet new friends, develop new skills, and make a difference in your community. 

Whether it’s donating toys for kids or volunteering to serve a holiday meal, the Helpline Center can help you find a way to give back throughout the year. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, our DIY projects, or any of our other services, visit or call 211.
