“United Way and The Volunteer Center are excited to get people engaged in acts of service. We’ve collaborated with a variety of nonprofit organizations to provide meaningful, hands-on experiences to make local impact,” says Radiah Pinckney, Manager of Volunteer and Community at United Way of Greater Greensboro.
National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.
“Through volunteerism, we have the power to bring real and positive change to our communities. Our acts of service don’t have to be huge to be important- a simple act of kindness can change everything. It’s through volunteering that we can truly come to understand and serve the needs of the community,” says Hope Tyler, Director of Volunteers and Community Engagement at The Volunteer Center.
