Happy Holidays — and Happy Volunteering — from The Volunteer Center

The coronavirus has made this an unusual holiday season, and is challenging local nonprofits in new ways. But their mission is more important than ever, especially during the holidays, and many of our nonprofit partners are in need of volunteers. We will post holiday opportunities as they come to us, so check this page regularly. We also encourage you to search through our list of nonprofits, and if you find an organization that you would like to support you can also contact them directly through our website to let them know you’re interested in volunteering. Wishing all volunteers a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
