A community that volunteers together stays together. We like to brag that we may be one of the highest per capita volunteering communities around.
Want to help keep Helvetia's traditions alive? Our volunteers work on everything from roasting ox in a pit to preserving and cleaning 100+ old headstones in the Helvetia Cemetery.
If you are interested in joining us, email us or review our community calendar for scheduled volunteer dates. Thank you!
