COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19, volunteering has been scaled back a bit. As of early 2023, we are bringing back volunteering opportunities, while still prioritizing community safety for volunteers and community members. If you are interested in volunteering with TNDC, please email Charles Purdy at cpurdy@tndc.org
