Volunteer Opportunities in the PD

Nonprofits get an average of 6 responses from posting volunteer opportunities in the Press Democrat Good Deeds column. This is perfect when you need someone with specific skill sets since the public can view the opportunity in the Sunday newspaper or online. Simply provide a brief description with all the necessary details and the Press Democrat can consider it for posting. Email your opportunity description to Jaime at jsmedes@volunteernow.org.

Roundtables A Great Resource!

I always enjoy networking at the Volunteer Managers’ Roundtable.  It’s a good way for me to talk about Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods and to learn about other organizations and services. Thanks for getting us all together!
