County seeks volunteers for local committees 

There are several volunteer opportunities available for Gloucester residents interested in serving their community. Gloucester County is looking for citizens to serve on several local committees, as there are a number of vacancies and not enough people to fill them.

The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors regularly seeks citizens on these board-appointed groups that advise and assist the governing body with many aspects of County government. Currently, volunteers are needed to serve on the Board of Social Services, the Historical Committee, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee (representative needed from the Abingdon Magisterial District), the Utilities Advisory Committee (representative needed from the York Magisterial District) and countywide residents to serve on the Telecommunications Committee.

If interested in becoming involved in local government and helping to serve the community, consider submitting your information to the Gloucester County Volunteer Board Bank, which provides members of the board of supervisors with the names and background information of interested citizens. To do so, visit (click on Board of Supervisors / Boards and Commissions); or call the County’s Community Engagement and Public Information office at 804-693-5730.
