VOLUNTEER & DONATE
There are many causes and organizations, activities, groups, and neighborhood associations in the larger Granite Falls area who survive because of community volunteers and donors. If you are interested in volunteering and/or donating financial or other support to any of these local entities, please contact them directly. Note: Before giving to a local charity, make sure they are a registered non-profit 501c3 if you want to declare your donation as a tax deduction.
