Vail Valley Volunteer Connection is coming soon
The Vail Valley Partnership recently announced its newest community benefit – the Vail Valley Volunteer Connection. Located online at http://www.VailValleyVolunteers.com, the Volunteer Connection is a resource for all of the Partnership’s non-profit members to promote their volunteer needs and to connect with interested community members, new residents, second homeowners, guests and other civic organizations.The Volunteer Center will be a part of the Vail Valley Partnership’s Non-Profit Network, which was established in November 2004 as a comprehensive resource for local non-profit organizations, providing them with the tools to sustain and grow their operations. The Non-Profit Network works to strengthen the connection between business and non-profit partners through education, networking and community awareness.”The Volunteer Center is a natural extension of the Partnership’s community role of helping local businesses and non-profits do business here in Eagle County. We hope to continue to help Eagle County’s non-profits connect with community and corporate volunteers and to serve as a centralized location for non-profit resources and volunteer engagement,” said Chris Romer, executive director of the Vail Valley Partnership.”Our community is filled with many wonderful people who are looking for ways to give back and nonprofits in need of people to support their programs. The Vail Valley Volunteer Connection will provide an easy way for people to find volunteer opportunities that best fit their talents and availability. The Vail Valley Partnership is providing a great resource and is increasing the impact we can all have in our community” said Amanda Visosky, Manager of Volunteer & Complementary Services at the Vail Valley Medical Center.The Partnership plans to host two events in spring 2011 to raise community awareness and provide fundraising opportunities to promote the new Vail Valley Volunteer Connection. Community sponsorships are available to local businesses interested in helping sponsor the Volunteer Connection.For more information, call Romer, 970-477-4016 or email@example.com.To learn more about the Vail Valley Volunteer Connection, go to http://www.vailvalleyvolunteers.com.
