Volunteering Ranging from One-Day to Long-Term Commitments
The February 12th Wall Street Journal had an article by Jane Hodges titled "A Virtual Matchmaker for Volunteers."
The article raised an interesting point: Some people would be happy to volunteer for a one-time project even though these same people might not be willing or able to volunteer for a long-term commitment.
How to find out about one-day or short-term volunteer opportunities? Hodges tested several free online services. Here are the ones she tested:
She also mentioned that many organizations that need short-term assistance are indexed at the governmental program Volunteer.gov.
If you're looking for a one-day or short-term volunteer commitment, consider checking out the sites tested by Hodges. You may find just the right volunteer opportunity for you.
