Mobilizing Volunteers
 

Volunteer Center Cabinet

The VCC assists in fulfilling corporate and community needs by mobilizing volunteers, leadership development, and volunteer recognition in our focus areas of education, basic needs, and health. The VCC also provides strategic direction to the Volunteer Center.
 

Corporate Volunteerism/Custom Group Projects

The Volunteer Center provides streamlined event management to corporate partners with firsthand knowledge of community needs to ensure that employee volunteer time is used effectively and efficiently. Email Norma Barragan to set up a project.

 

Little Free Libraries

These “take a book, leave a book” structures are just big enough to hold 20-30 books, creating access to reading material across the community. There are 27 Little Free Libraries located in public parks in Whitfield and Murray County.
