United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County in a new collaborative partnership with the Nonprofit Center Milwaukee (NPC) is launching a new volunteer engagement portal today.
By creating a venue that both allows individuals to see the many ways they can make a difference and agencies to promote their needs. United Way has increased the potential for volunteerism, donations, and involvement in the community. Nonprofit partners in the area began posting their volunteer needs on the new portal today in hopes of increasing the opportunities for community members to get involved.
Rockwell Automation is the corporate sponsor of the new portal, titled Volunteers United.
The portal has enhanced features for those seeking volunteer opportunities.
