Dealing directly with over 200 local non-profit organizations, I can attest to the invaluable service supplied by The Volunteer Center. Many organizations I deal with have no ability to get volunteer support for events or programs. The Volunteer Center lets them reach out to the community and bring in people who share the same values and concerns, and brings them together in a way where both sides benefit greatly. One of my first exposures to The Volunteer Center was at a 9-11 Day of Service volunteer event. Many of the small groups attending found desperately needed volunteers for their programs. Several I know in the animal rights field are very small groups, and were extremely grateful for the help and support. Keeping their program afloat is full time work, and the time and skill to get volunteers just isn't possible. The Volunteer Center gives them what they need to do their good works.
