Save the Chimps needs you – to volunteer!

Save the Chimps Needs You….To Volunteer!

We’ve asked some of our very own volunteers why they donate their time to
Save the Chimps, here’s what a few of them had to say…
Susan G. (volunteer since 2011)
“I have the time, and it is important to reach out to help others….. When I leave the compound, I feel good, I feel satisified, and I feel I have helped to make a difference in the lives of the chimps!”

Alison C. (volunteer since 2007)
“I truly believe that volunteering is the rent we pay for living.”

Sharon D. (volunteer since 2004)
“I originally started because I wanted to do something good…. Now I go because it is what I do on Sundays and I am a part of the place”

Art & Jean Z. (volunteers since 2011)
“Volunteering at STC has brought unimagined joy to our everyday lives!  We get a lot of laughs and a big kick out of the “kids,” as we call them – the paid employees of STC – who always greet us with smiles and friendliness.”

Our Top 10…Reasons to Volunteer at Save the Chimps!

#10 You will be a shining example to others and encourage more people to give their time to the chimps!
#9  It saves resources, so more money can be spent directly on the chimps.
#8 You can try out a new career; if you ever thought that you would like to work for a sanctuary, it’s a great stepping stone!
#7 It adds to your social network; there’s nothing like making a new friend (while making 900 peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for the chimps to eat)!
#6 You’ll put a smile on a chimp’s face when they discover the enrichment you made for them hidden on their island.
#5 It strengthens the community; donating your time as a volunteer at Save the Chimps lets members of the community know that we play an important role to area residents and businesses.
#4 You’ll get to hear the sounds of chimps pant-hooting.
#3 It gives you a chance to give of yourself to a cause that is important to you.
#2 You will probably spot a chimp or two or twenty roaming on a beautiful island.
#1 You will make a difference in the lives of over 250 chimpanzees; it’s your support that makes our work possible and gives the chimps the lives they deserve.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and the one thing that they do have in common is their compassion towards animals and the motivation to help improve the lives of the chimpanzees in our care.
Thank you for your support!!!
