Volunteering

WE VALUE AND APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE VOLUNTEER

The Town of Black Diamond is very proud to have so many Diamond Valley residents and businesses that are committed to helping this community be a better place for everyone. Volunteers of all ages continue to donate their time and make a difference. They play a very important role in community spirit. They work together helping groups, organizations and committees that are responsible for making the region a vibrant, interesting, fun and attractive place to live, work and play.
