Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Give your best. We all have special talents. Things we can do to help. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s reading to children, or leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families, or delivering meals to homebound seniors, there are hundreds of volunteer options available every day. Give the gift of you. Volunteer.
Get Connected (http://getconnected.unitedwayerie.org) is a simple and yet revolutionary web-based solution for helping individuals find local volunteer opportunities that fit their interests and skills.
The central database for volunteer opportunities in Erie County, Get Connected allows potential volunteers to go online and create custom profiles, helping them find opportunities that meet their availability. Local nonprofits can also create online profiles for their organizations, and users can then “follow” those nonprofits and receive updates whenever a new volunteer opportunity is posted.
