Are you at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service (NCVS) this week in Chicago? We’re holding a meet up for hunger-related nonprofit organizations to talk about effectively engaging volunteers in the fight against hunger. Read below for more details!
Did you know there are more than 5,000 nonprofit organizations using VolunteerMatch right now to engage volunteers in the fight against hunger? With a number like that, it’s easy to be optimistic about the impact we can make on this critical issue.
But it’s still not enough. That’s why, with support from the Walmart Foundation, we’re trying to increase that number with the Fighting Hunger Together Initiative.
The more hunger-fighting organizations that use VolunteerMatch to engage the volunteers they need to accomplish their missions, the closer we get to a world where no child goes to bed hungry, and no elderly person wonders where their next meal will come from.
This week at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, we’ll be in the Exhibit Hall talking with nonprofits that work to end hunger about how they can be a part of this great initiative. From free volunteer engagement trainings tailored specifically to the challenges facing hunger-related organizations, to complimentary access to premium volunteer recruiting tools at VolunteerMatch, we are making sure nonprofits working to end hunger have what you need to effectively engage volunteers.
And what about all of the great knowledge and experience you have to share with each other? Wouldn’t it be great if you could meet all of the other hunger-fighting nonprofits at the NCVS conference this year and share best practices?
Let’s make it happen. We’re holding a meet up for hunger-related organizations at our booth in the Exhibit Hall on Tuesday, June 19 at 1:30pm. Come by Booth 221 for a description of the Fighting Hunger Together initiative, live demonstrations and to meet all the other people at the conference who focus on hunger issues. Also, we have candy and stickers.
