With the holidays nearly upon us, the need for volunteers grows.

This column offers a rundown of volunteer opportunities to allow folks to invest in the community.

Contact the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce, Trish Petrie at Turtle Beach Inn or Tim Croft at tcroft@starfl.com to provide additional opportunities for this column.

Here are a number of opportunities:

* Annual Community Thanksgiving dinner

This is a call for volunteers who would like to help cook, prepare, package and deliver 800 meals to needy individuals in Gulf County. Those interested should call Jerry Stokoe at 229-8440. Volunteers will meet at the Oak Grove Assembly of God Church on Madison Street at 8 a.m. ET on Nov. 22. This will be the day for the heating, preparation, packaging and delivery of the dinners.

* Goodwill Career Training Center is asking retirees and volunteers to share their expertise and skills by volunteering to tutor or mentor. Many participants at the Center need help completing their GED, including language, writing, mathematics and computer skills. Please contact Tandra Burns at 229-1273.
