Make A Difference Day
Join us as a Project Leader or general volunteer on one of the largest days of service in the state of Arkansas! This campus-wide day of service takes place every October as we partner with local agencies from all over the region to develop and fulfill service projects. From farm clean-ups to stocking shelves at the food pantry or even serving a full shift at the animal shelter – MADD has something for every volunteer.
The mission of The Spark Foundation is to create a positive impact in the community by providing increased access to health and fitness education and opportunities. We achieve this through our races, outreach programs, and direct giving toward physical education.
Walton Art Center
As a non-profit organization, the revenues from their programming at Walton Arts Center and the Walmart AMP support learning and education programs that ensure that the arts remain an essential part of the lives of students, teachers and families in Northwest Arkansas. Through the generous support of their sponsors, most of their school programs are offered at low or no cost.
Beautiful lives Boutique
Beautiful Lives Boutique is a non-profit women’s fashion resale boutique to help abandoned and abused women and children locally and globally. The goal is to have friendly volunteers greeting women at the door, helping them shop through the store, helping them pick out outfits, and empowering her to confident just the way she is. If you don’t want to be the face of the store, no worries, we have plenty of other opportunities. One is the processing room. We are constantly receiving clothing donations and can use all the help we can get sorting through all of it. If you have an eye for what’s in style or just loving hanging out with people we would love to spend time getting to know you and making a difference in our neighborhood and across the world.
