Volunteer Connection

Students and other members of the NKU community volunteer at the Giving Fields as a part of the 2013 Spring into Service event.

What is The Volunteer Connection?

The Volunteer Connection is an innovative website created and maintained by the United Way of Greater Cincinnati. The Volunteer Connection provides links and resources for individuals who are looking to be connected with volunteer and donation opportunities in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area.

The Volunteer Connection also works the other way, serving as a medium that allows local nonprofits to create and post various volunteer opportunitites which can then be picked up by responsible community members who are looking to make a difference in the area.

The Volunteer Connection is a simple and convenient method that allows you, as a community member or nonprofit organization, to improve the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area.

The Volunteer Connection Spotlight!

Party Animal?  Help Mercy Health- St. John give kids a fun time:

Mercy Health - St. John is a social service agency in Over-the-Rhine and their end-of-the-summer celebration for their client families is coming up on August, 15 from 4:30-7:15 p.m.

Their families don't have too many chances to have a good time, so they are in need of volunteers to help make this event an extra big success!

Volunteers are needed to distribute school supplies to the children so they are ready for the start of school. They also  need volunteers to help with games and activities. The organization is asking for all the help they can get; their families look forward to this party all summer.

"Please help us see that they have a really great time!"
