08/07/2019- Looking to help out your community, but don’t know where to start? The Tri-City Area United Way has launched a new volunteer initiative to better connect a community of volunteers with local organizations that need assistance. The new web application, called Get Connected, provides an easy-to-use platform for nonprofit and community organizations to post volunteer opportunities and upcoming events. Representatives with the local United Way say the Get Connected site provides a central location where individuals and groups can view existing needs and then register for service opportunities that align with their own interests and abilities. To visit the Volunteer Connection Center, go to tricityareaunitedway.org and click on ‘Volunteer’ or, for more information, call the United Way at 715-735-7785.
