Individual Volunteer Opportunities:
Volunteers were instrumental in the preservation of the Hezekiah Alexander Home Site and the establishment of The Charlotte Museum of History. Volunteers continue to play a meaningful role in our operations by working with staff to welcome guests and provide guided tours.
Volunteering at The Charlotte Museum of History is a great way to learn more about history, meet new people, learn and share information, and make a real contribution to our cultural life are just a few of the benefits volunteers can receive for their time and effort.
Group Volunteer Opportunities:
Are you part of a corporate or civic organization that volunteers to make your community better? We can use your help at the Charlotte Museum of History! Below are projects your group can help us complete. If you can provide labor AND materials – fantastic! Just labor? We’ll take that too! And if your group can think of other tasks it would like to offer that aren’t on this list, give us a call to discuss your ideas. Please contact Tracy Ryals, Facilities Manager, by phone at 704-568-1774 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The entrance of the Museum is planted with perennials and shrubs that are welcoming – and in need of a refresh! There are also grassy areas, enjoyed by students and families, that could be revived with new seeding and fertilizer. There are several shrubs that should be removed, the grassy areas need to be resown with seed, and there is light weeding needed throughout the beds.
The tasks involved in the Landscaping Project include:
• Removing dead azalea bushes
• Weeding the beds
• Re-mulching the beds
• Aerating the grassy areas of the lawn and re-seeding
The materials need in the Landscaping Project include:
• Shovels, spades, hand trowels, wheelbarrows
• Aerator, fescue seed, and hay
