National Volunteer Week Spotlight

April 7, 2014

April 6 -12th is National Volunteer Week, a time to honor the many volunteers who dedicate hours of service and hard work to community service projects and nonprofits, and to encourage more volunteer work in our communities. Volunteers are a vital component for nonprofits, particularly those that are volunteer-led. If your nonprofit is in need of a few more helping hands to strengthen your mission and to reach your goals, or if you are someone who would like to begin volunteering for a cause you care about, check out our volunteer service members below and get the search started today.
