In celebration of National Volunteer Week, VO hosted a “Volunteer Rendezvous” to help our not-for-profit member organizations recruit volunteers. 14 of our organizations took advantage of this opportunity and were able to meet face-to-face with about 75 prospective volunteers.
Thanks to everyone who came out to learn about the volunteer opportunities in the city.
If you missed out, don’t worry, we have included links to the organizations that did present so you can read more about them and view their volunteer opportunities.
