Volunteer at Vale

Please consider volunteering at Vale, we have opportunities to fit any schedule and lifestyle.

Throughout the year, Vale relies on local volunteer groups to help cleanup the 100-acre cemetery. There are no paid workers to do this. 

Special work days are needed: raking leaves, clearing brush and limbs, removing trash are worth thousands of dollars to Vale. 

Union College, Key Bank and General Electric have helped annually. Your group can help too! Also: Special skills like painting, carpentry, electrical and paving work can be tax deductible. Every little bit helps and no contribution is too small.
