American Red Cross is looking for a variety of volunteers. Currently looking for blood donors.
Dakota County Medical Reserve Corps is a part of the Medical Reserve Corps - a national network of volunteers organized into local units.

DARTS is a community-based nonprofit organization serving seniors (ages 55+) and their families in Dakota County and the surrounding area, helping them to lead more independent and fulfilling lives. Through services like light housework, outdoor chores, home repair, caregiving resources, volunteer opportunities and transportation, we have worked to be a community partner across generations.
Hands-On Twin Cities is the Twin Cities only full-service volunteer center that both promotes and facilitates volunteerism while improving the community’s ability to create more impact with the time generously given by volunteers. They work with all types of volunteers, companies, and nonprofit affiliates to ensure that every hour spent in the community is valuable.
The Open Door has volunteer opportunities for everyone. Volunteers stock shelves, shop with clients, stock and drive the Mobile Pantry, and keep the Pantry in tip-top shape. Garden-to-Table volunteers weed plots, shovel mulch, and share their garden know-how.
Kids ‘n Kinship is a non-profit mentoring organization. Our mission is to provide friendships to children ages 5-16 who are in need of a positive adult role model. You can make a difference in your own community! Volunteers spend 1-4 hours per week in the community with the child. Typical activities might include picnicking, attending sporting events, hobbies, baking cookies or going to the movies. Volunteers make a one-year commitment to the program. These relationships often grow into life-long friendships. The program also has a small school based program at four elementary schools
