There are many areas that we utilize volunteers

The Mark Preece Family House began as a volunteer-led organization, therefore we recognize the huge contribution that volunteers make to a not for profit organization.  We would not be able to provide a “home away from home” for families in need without a team of dedicated volunteers.


Duties include administration/office work, greeting guests, answering phones, and daily house routines.  Volunteers are scheduled in four hour shifts and the minimum commitment is two shifts per month.


Duties include assisting with folding linens, tidying common areas, restocking supplies, and maintaining the general appearance of the house.  Volunteers are scheduled in four hour shifts and the minimum commitment is two shifts per month.


A maintenance volunteer helps with minor repairs throughout the house performing duties such as painting, and changing light bulbs.  The time commitment is as required.


A Thyme4Dinner volunteer will prepare a meal for the families staying at the House. After a long, stressful day at the hospital, a home cooked meal is very appreciated by all of our families. Groups or individuals prepare a meal for approximately 20 – 25 individuals, either in our kitchen or theirs. We often have house food available for use or volunteers supply the items needed for their meal.


Events such as Golf4Life require volunteers to assist with organizing fundraising events and committee work. The time required is on an as needed basis.


Includes those with skills, such as graphic design, research, and writing proposals, who would like to volunteer their services to a specific project.  The time commitment is as you are available.
