OAKLAND, Calif., September 9, 2021 – VolunteerMatch, the largest nonprofit network on the web connecting volunteers with opportunities to give back, is partnering with AmeriCorps and California Volunteers, Office of the Governor to help people find ways to give back in remembrance of the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.
VolunteerMatch and AmeriCorps developed a robust search tool to make it even easier for people to be of service in their communities. People can explore a wide variety of volunteer opportunities across the U.S. — all in one place — including VolunteerMatch; AmeriCorps; California Volunteers, Office of the Governor; Idealist; JustServe; MENTOR; and Volunteer.gov.
“We are excited to partner with VolunteerMatch to ensure service opportunities are accessible to all Californians,” said California Chief Service Officer Josh Fryday. “20 years later, the best way to pay tribute to those lost on 9/11 is by coming together in service to one another.”
At home or in-person, there are a variety of ways volunteers can give their time.
“9/11 is a great day to be of service and show your support to all those impacted by 9/11. We are so thrilled to be partnering with AmeriCorps and California Volunteers along with other networks to highlight all the ways people can get involved in their communities,” said Laura Plato, Chief Solutions Officer at VolunteerMatch
