Donor/Volunteer Opportunities

The Department of Social Service has a variety of volunteer and donor opportunities available. Please call the number listed below to inquire about any of the opportunities listed.

1. Christmas Toy Drive
While this drive is handled by the Salvation Army, the Stokes County DSS takes all of the applications and determines eligibility for the program. The Stokes County DSS is also a drop off site during the months of November and December for toys and donations to this program.

2. Elderly & Disabled Fund
This fund is used if all other resources have been depleted to assist an elderly or disabled citizen with any number of needs. For example, necessary medication or clothing or temporary shelter. Please consider making a tax deductible donation.

3. Foster Children’s Fund
This fund is used at Christmas to help provide a little something extra to those in foster care at a special time of year. Please consider making a tax deductible donation.
