United Way introduces online volunteer system
In an effort to increase the collaboration, connections, and relationships among local non-profits and community members, United Way introduced the online volunteer system called "Get Connected."
Get Connected is an easy-to-use web-based platform that matches the right donors, advocates and volunteers with the appropriate opportunities in the community, based on personal interests.
Users can sign up to receive notification of service opportunities that match their interests and respond to the needs of the community agencies with the click of a button.
Companies can encourage corporate volunteerism by managing groups of users. Administrators can track employee volunteer hours and communicate with their employees in a private forum.
Get Connected can also be used to make donations and advocate for causes.
To access the system, go to www.uwdp.org and click on the volunteer tab. Check back often for updates on new agencies with volunteer opportunities and events going on in the community.
