25% of all new volunteers make their first contribution to an organization between Thanksgiving and New Year’s!


Over 300 NEW volunteers contact the Volunteer Center during the holidays – looking for ways to support organizations like yours.

At the Volunteer Center, our mission is to connect local volunteers to organizations in our community – we’re here to help you achieve your mission!

You can attract new supporters to your program by listing your projects in the Volunteer Center’s 2023 Holiday Volunteer Guide.
