Community Connection: United Way Day of Caring with Zoey Leege
Understandably, the pandemic brought volunteer numbers down, but Zoey Leege from the United Way is set on growing those numbers. Leege is currently very focused on gearing up for Day of Caring on Wednesday, June 21st. "There's about 15 different non-profit organizations signed up so far and room for hundreds of volunteers," says Leege.
Volunteer opportunities for Day of Caring are varied, as is the level of commitment. "Everybody has something to give," says Leege. "The neat thing about our online volunteer center is that there's a huge variety of needs posted on there." Users can sort postings based on location, interest, schedule and more. Volunteer opportunities are not limited to Day of Caring. Those looking for a long-term commitment can also utilize the site.
