TN's Volunteer Odyssey has partnered with 30 nonprofits to launch a "city-wide volunteer calendar" that enables citizens to discover opportunities easily.
"If you're looking for a place to volunteer, but you don't know where or when to start, Volunteer Odyssey has launched a brand new volunteer opportunity calendar. The calendar features volunteer opportunities at more than 30 nonprofits from across the Mid-South. Volunteer Odyssey has partnered with nonprofits like Porter-Leath, Urban Bicycle Food Ministry, Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center, Catholic Charities of West Tennessee, and Habitat For Hope. The idea for the calendar came after volunteer coordinators started contacting Volunteer Odyssey Founder, Dr. Sarah Petschonek, for help get recruiting volunteers. She also saw an increase in request for individual volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved in Memphis." -- Lauren Squires, WMCActionNews5.com
