LaPorte County Community Service Volunteers

Community Service is a sentencing option or condition that requires some to take unpaid positions with nonprofit agencies. You will need to work a specified number of hours in a given time period determined by the court. If you need to perform community service, what better place than Friendship Botanic Gardens? We always have a need for volunteer help and in doing so you can help your community grow and thrive. We can get all of your paperwork filled out and verified per court order and you can do your part to give back to the community. We will work with those who are committed and serious about filling their community service hours for the courts. Please contact Triecia at info@friendshipgardens.org or 219.878.9885.
