Service to HARI is service to GOD as well as to our community. As a non-profit service-oriented religious/cultural/educational organization, HARI is always seeking volunteers for various tasks. Some activities that would be of benefit to all of us are exterior maintenance of the temple grounds by pulling weeds, collecting and disposing of trash and other discarded materials, planting of approved shrubs and flowering plants in accordance with the overall landscaping plan. In addition, volunteers are also required during major celebrations and special events to perform assigned tasks. Interested community members should contact President of HARI. Volunteers are also needed to teach Sunday School students in various academic areas such as Scholastic Achievement Test subject areas, fine arts, namely, classical music and dance. Interested people should contact the Director of Sunday School for further details.
