Here at VolunteerMatch, we understand that the hardest part of Tropical Storm Irene is still ahead of us. That is, the recovery. Organizations along the east coast continue to recruit support for the affected areas, and we’re here to help.

For the next two weeks, we will offer free 6-month access to our premium Community Leader Membership for organizations recruiting volunteers for cleanup and relief efforts in the affected communities.

If you are a nonprofit located in this region, visit our Community page for directions on how to access to this offer. If you know an organization working in this region that needs volunteers, please pass along this link and encourage them to use this special offer to enhance their volunteer opportunities.

Access to Community Leader Membership lets you:

  • Create enhanced listings to help the opportunity stand out
  • Add photos, logos or graphics to your volunteer listing
  • Send volunteers registration forms, applications or information sheets in advance

You can check out a full overview of Community Leader Memebership in this video tutorial. While you’re at it, take a look at these tips for using VolunteerMatch tools for disaster preparation and response.

Please help us spread the word to make it easier for these organizations to recruit needed volunteers. Together, we can help these communities find the manpower they need to overcome the hardships caused by the storm.
