It’s been just about six months since we introduced you to Fighting Hunger Together, our initiative supported by the Walmart Foundation to help organizations working to end hunger engage volunteers in your work.
Through this initiative we’re providing free access to our premium tools to any nonprofit in the U.S. trying to end hunger in any way. We’ve also developed a new curriculum of free online trainings that focus on the unique challenges facing hunger-related nonprofits when it comes to engaging and managing volunteers.
Now it’s time for an update! How are things going in our fight against hunger? Here are some numbers:
Opportunities to fight hunger on VolunteerMatch.org (counting virtual opportunities).
Organizations fighting hunger that use VolunteerMatch.org to connect with volunteers.
Connections made between a nonprofit fighting hunger and a volunteer since the beginning of 2012.
States on the Hunger Map where you can explore hunger-related volunteer opportunities.
Upcoming free webinars just this summer to help hunger-fighting nonprofits engage volunteers.
