San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
In advance of National Volunteer Week, VolunteerMatch, the web’s largest volunteer engagement network, is offering the nation’s volunteers, businesses, campuses and government agencies more than 74,000 ways to make a difference at nonprofit organizations.
National Volunteer Week recognizes and celebrates the efforts of volunteers nationwide from April 15 to April 21. For volunteers, it’s an opportunity to engage again with the organizations at which they serve or find new ways to give back. For organizations, National Volunteer Week is a time to recognize the tremendous impact of volunteers who collectively contributed more than 8 billion hours in the U.S. last year.
Since 1998, VolunteerMatch has made it easy for volunteers to find a great place to volunteer and for organizations to find the volunteers they need. VolunteerMatch also supports the volunteer engagement initiatives of a growing network of corporate, campus and government partners who are deploying their programs on the VolunteerMatch platform.
