VolunteerConnector Adds COVID-19 Tag
VolunteerConnector has added a COVID-19 tag to their volunteer opportunities for organizations in urgent need to quickly find volunteers.

VolunteerConnector is also putting a focus on virtual volunteering and encouraging all organizations to post any opportunities for remote volunteer connection.

The following is an excerpt from the Insightrix website: “According to those who were involved in volunteering in Saskatchewan, for the most part, being a volunteer was something they benefited from.”. You can check out the information on their website by clicking here.
