Volunteers are key to the success of the Preston Castle Foundation. Our volunteer base is wide and varied but we're always looking for specialty skilled individuals, i.e. plumbers, electricians, carpenters, landscapers, etc.  We welcome all people who truly want to work together as a team to improve the Castle's condition and upkeep.

We invite you to join us in Saving the Castle. There is a committee for virtually every interest.  Whether you have a few hours a week to devote, or are willing to just help out at an event or two—YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
