Involvement that values our place in the world

Our community is privileged to have residents who devote their time and talents through volunteering on campus and giving back to the community. Many are involved in their church groups, civic organizations and other associations.

On any given day, groups of residents of Peter Becker Community are planning, coordinating and implementing acts of kindness. Volunteer programs at the community range from those that help residents support one another to those that reach out to one of the many area nonprofit organizations we support, with programs that include aiding local food banks, knitting caps for premature babies, supporting little league teams and more.

Thousands of hours are given back to Peter Becker Community every year through various activities, special events and day-to-day interactions. We welcome volunteers of all ages to get involved in a variety of important functions.
