The Volunteers of Louisa was initiated through the combined efforts of volunteers and
non-profit organizations already serving the community.
Goal: V.O.L. will serve as a centralized clearinghouse to help facilitate, promote, and
recognize volunteerism in our community.
What Does V.O.L. Do?
- Recruit: Volunteers and match their skills and interests with local volunteer opportunities. Initiate and
promote special programs and services to respond to community and individual needs.
- Recognize: We recognize volunteers once a year at our Volunteer Recognition Reception held in April.
If you know of a Volunteer that should be recognized please contact us.
- Refer: Volunteers to human service providers.
- To build a stronger community
- To share experiences as a family
- To be a good neighbor
- To keep active
- To make a difference
- To gain work experience
- TO HAVE FUN!
