Even if you work during the hours your child's center is open, you can still volunteer time. During fundraising events such as bake sales, you can use your off time to bake a variety of goods and drop them off at the center with your child. Also check to see if there are things that need to be done while the center is closed. For example, many smaller centers and those that rely on public funding may need something as simple as a good carpet shampoo, which you could volunteer to either do yourself, or provide. Simply ask what sort of jobs need to be done, and see what you and the other parents can do. Don't sell yourself short, remember that any amount of time volunteered is valuable, even if it is only an hour or two.
