Join us for #FestiVOL15!

VolunteerMatch is celebrating #FestiVOL15 in honor of National Volunteer Week (April 12-18, 2015), and we want YOU to join us!

What is #FestiVOL15? It's a celebration of all things volunteering (especially the fun parts!) Whether you work with volunteers, give back in your free time, or are still looking for that perfect opportunity, here's to you!

Each day for a whole week we'll post three "nuggets" just for you: One piece of inspiration, one piece of knowledge, and one action. Follow the hashtag #FestiVOL15 on Twitter to see everything as it's released, and to join in the fun yourself.
