They could volunteer at any number of places. Homeless shelters and food banks are always happy to have volunteers to help out. They could contact the local Habitat for Humanity chapter in the city that they are visting. There area also such things as volunteer vacations. Try charityguide.org. They have a link to volunteer vacations. I would also suggest that they could contact local Senior Citizens centers and local churches for opportunities.
