Volunteers are important to the work of the Beacon Hill Civic Association and their help enables the association to accomplish all of their work. Neighbors working on behalf of neighbors reflect the spirit of the organization’s mission.
Volunteers may choose to serve year-round on one of many committees, help on an ad hoc committee, or give their time on a single project or special event. The BHCA welcomes the help for as much or as little time a volunteer has available.
