United Way launches online volunteer solution

By creating a venue that both allows individuals to see the many ways they can make a difference and agencies to promote their needs, the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties has increased the potential for volunteerism and involvement in the community. 


On January 5th, nonprofits and charities in the area began posting their volunteer and other needs online in hopes of increasing the opportunities for community members to get involved. The online system is called Volunteer Connection and is located at www.volunteermpc.org.  


“We are thrilled to offer this new innovative platform to our community,” commented Brandi Helms, United Way CEO. “The system will streamline how our community gives back to the many agencies in our area.”


The online Volunteer Connection system will do more than just create matches among the service community and private citizens; it will also help to build lasting relationships.


Responding to needs is easy and can change a life. Users can visit volunteermpc.org to setup their account and respond to these needs today.


The United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties is a leader in addressing community issues. Funds raised during their annual campaign supports 49 programs at 29 health and human service agencies in Monongalia and Preston counties.
