The spirit of volunteerism has always been a part of the Columbus area. Whether its mentoring children, performing physical labor, working with the disabled, or disaster response, the community has always come forward to help where ever the need. That same spirit brought about the creation of the Volunteer Connection program.
The purpose of Volunteer Connection is to match volunteers with volunteer opportunities.
