Louise knew she wanted to volunteer, but didn’t know where. A VolunteerMatch search led her to CuriOdyssey, a wildlife center she had visited the previous year.
With her background in science education for children and her love of animals, it was a perfect match. Now, she enjoys keeping the animals happy and safe as an animal welfare monitor.
At VolunteerMatch, we make it easy for good people and good causes to connect. However, since these initial connections happen online, we don’t always get to see firsthand the impact of these numerous connections – the impact on the volunteers themselves, the organizations they volunteer with, and the communities they serve.
That’s why we went out into our community to see what volunteers who found their connections through VolunteerMatch (such as Louise) were up to.
In the short video below, get to know the amazing work Louise and CuriOdyssey are doing together.
