Nature and Context

Volunteering your time and labor can transform your community and outlook. Making sure you are giving the most to the most in need can be hard to gauge. Volunteering platforms that are location specific could make the work of the record high number of volunteers even more meaningful. This could be true for short term needs, life after a natural disaster, or for long term problems like homelessness, hunger, etc.
