Kateri: Best of the Best!

The readers of the Asbury Park Press have once again voted Kateri Center as the Best of the Best. This year we were honored as the Best Place to Volunteer! We love our loyal volunteers; some have been with us for 3 decades. We have regular volunteers who come each week to help in the office or around the property. We also have a large number of special event volunteers who make our large fund raisers possible.

Our next big volunteer opportunity is the Halloween Night Hike. On Wednesday. Oct 22 over 50 people will come out to carve all the pumpkins for the Night Hike trail.Why not join us?  We also need helpers that week to put the pumpkins out and set up for the event. At the event itself we need actors and car parkers, bakers and crafters; there is a job for everyone! Call us to be a part of our volunteer family and see for yourself why Kateri is the BEST! 732 946 9694
