LOOK WHO'S TURNING 50
It is with great pride that we announce our 50th Anniversary.
For 50 years our doors have been open county- wide and tens of thousands of our neighbors have walked in to offer their time and talents, or get the help they needed. Across years and issues, together we have created something profound and enduring.
So much has changed in those 50 years. We’ve been through 4 names and dozens of locations. We’ve grown to engage 12,000 people a year, our Impact Programs now provide services to 9,000 local people, and our Mobilization Team supports 500+ nonprofit, school and local public partners.
But at our heart, we are still about what happens when hopeful people work together to transform our community for good.
We are launching six months of celebration, reflection, and renewal to honor the legacy and accomplishments of the thousands of volunteers who are part of our movement. We’ll be sharing our history in stories, film and photos. And, we will reach out to everyone to share the wisdom that 50 years has brought us: acts of kindness, performed by average people, matter a great deal to this community. We look forward to celebrating with you!
Donate to our 50th Anniversary Fund
As part of our 50th Anniversary celebration, we are launching our first Annual Fund Campaign to raise $150,000 to support and grow the great work of our volunteers and programs. With your help, we can lay the foundation for our next 50 years of service to our community.
We ask that you honor the people, legacy and accomplishments of the Volunteer Center with a gift to our new Annual Fund.
