Throughout the year, the Town, along with other community organizations, offers opportunities for the community to come together and make a difference. These projects and fundraisers are wide ranging so please use this page to find an opportunity that best fits your passions and abilities.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Maggie Valley Community Gardens – Throughout the planting season the “Giving Gardens” of Maggie Valley works hard to operate a community garden that helps to provide food for meals prepared for our community, including the Maggie Valley United Methodist Church ‘Shepherds Table’, a weekly dinner held on Monday evenings to feed couples, families and individuals. If you would like to volunteer for this effort please visit

Maggie Valley Clean-up Day – Volunteers meet at Town Hall to pick up trash as part of the Commission for a Clean County.  Gloves, safety vests and bags for collected garbage are provided.  Our most recent Clean-up Day was in September.  Please check back here for updates on the next opportunity!

Spring Planting Day – The Town holds a Spring planting and beautification day. The date for this event will be determined annually, please check back to learn more.

Jonathan Creek Clean Up – In the past, Town officials have joined together with citizens, business owners, and other volunteers to clean trash out of Jonathan Creek. The Town will be scheduling this event during Haywood Waterways’ “Big Sweep” Event. Please check this site for scheduling dates.
