Organizations in and around Stone Mountain are looking for a few good volunteers.
Whether you have some extra time, skill sets you want to share, or just a big heart for helping others, one or more of the following volunteer opportunities could be a good fit:
- The Stone Mountain Village Visitor Center is looking for local volunteers to welcome visitors to our area. Volunteers only need to commit to one three-hour shift per month.

- DeKalb County, because of the high number of fires every year, is among the counties where the Metropolitan Atlanta chapter of the American Red Cross needs a lot of volunteers, a spokesman said. Red Cross volunteers do everything from assisting with situations such as disaster response and blood drives, to providing education on safety and disaster preparedness, etc. Disaster volunteer training is also available, but participants must be registered Red Cross volunteers first before taking disaster training classes.
