air max It's Volunteer Appreciation Week: Get connected with local charities through United Way's Volunteer CenterWe want people to know it’s here and it’s a free resource that is available and doing great things.

Interested in volunteering somewhere locally but don t know where to start? The United Way of Madison County is reestablishing the Volunteer Center of Madison County as a one-stop shop for both interested volunteers and charitable organizations who need them.

April 6-13 is Volunteer Appreciation Week, said Veronica Tucker, Volunteer Center director. And a lot of people still don t know where to go to find volunteer opportunities, and a lot of organizations don t know there is a resource to help them find more volunteers.

The Volunteer Center is available by and scrolling down to the Volunteer Center sign-up buttonor by visiting , selecting I want to from the top menu bar and clicking volunteer from the drop-down menu.

Tucker said 952 volunteers and more than 170 organizations have already signed up.

We want people to know it s here and it s a free resource that is available and doing great things, said Tucker. We re looking to rebuild the Volunteer Center as a one-stop shop for everyone.

Individuals who register can identify their specific interests such as helping children, animals or people with disabilities to help them get matched up with organizations that fit those interests. Recently, a group of volunteers from local colleges helped at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School s field day.

Many of the volunteer opportunities are available during working hours, but Tucker said many companies see benefits to giving employees time to volunteer for charitable causes. For those currently unemployed, she said, volunteering is a good way to maintain skill sets and to fill a hole in a resume with meaningful work. Opportunities are available for marketing, grant writing and assisting with administrative tasks.

More information on the United Way and the Volunteer Center of Madison County is available at , by calling (256) 536-0745 or by visiting the United Way s office at 701 Andrew Jackson Way in Huntsville.
