Dear Friends of the Volunteer Center,
For nearly 30 years the Volunteer Center has helped create positive change in Washington County. From homeless shelters and food banks, to senior centers and community green spaces, we
are a major connection point for volunteers looking to serve community need. We invite you to meet Sherry, and see the power of one!
We first met Sherry at one of our family volunteer events. Sherry felt it was important to expose her children to volunteer service (we agree!), and she and her family quickly became active participants in these events.
When we learned Sherry was recently laid off and actively seeking employment we also suggested that she volunteer to hone her professional skills, learn new ones and network with new people in the community. We matched her with the local free clinic, where she now volunteers 10-15 hours per week interviewing and screening all new clinic volunteers.
Sherry also regularly attends our volunteer coordinator education sessions where she can expand volunteer management techniques and can share her experiences with other volunteer coordinators. This kind of communication is a plus for all volunteer coordinators.
Sherry is one of the 2,500 volunteers we connected to service in 2012. If one volunteer can do so much for the community, just think of what thousands can accomplish together! In fact, last year volunteers contributed roughly a half of million hours of service to Washington County!
As the new executive director, I took the opportunity to have individual heart-to-heart conversations with nearly all of our 58 partner agencies, and I heard the same thing over and over again. As nonprofits continue to experience budget constraints, they are relying on volunteer help more than ever to keep their programs and services going. They turn to the Volunteer Center for volunteer recruitment, education and support to help them through this difficult time.
