Davis Lake Volunteer Program Information

In response to a sharp increase in the number of residents expressing interest in helping the community, the DLCA Board of Directors along with our Community Director are excited to announce the new
DAVIS LAKE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM.

In the new program, an endless number of opportunities are presented to allow all residents the opportunity to pursue a broad range of personal interests. For residents who are flexible in their involvement, we will now be maintaining a General Roster of Volunteers with personal preferences to include as many residents as possible.

There is no obligation to signing up, it only helps the Board and Community Director understand your interests!! Your involvement in this program will help Davis Lake maintain it's position as the PREMIER COMMUNITY OF NORTHEAST CHARLOTTE. It will include frequent exposure to the Community and the Board, social opportunities, and an overall Volunteer Appreciation Event to celebrate our accomplishments and key volunteers!!
