Had a Relaxing Summer? Looking to Volunteer? The Long Island Volunteer Center is Asking All LIers to Get Involved…2013 Fall Volunteer Opportunities List Now Available!

Hempstead, NY – September 15, 2013 – The Long Island Volunteer Center is asking all Long Islanders to get involved and make a difference in their communities.  The Long Island Volunteer Center, an affiliate of HandsOn Network, is designated by New York State as the Regional Volunteer Center for Long Island serving Nassau and Suffolk Counties.  This designation, which is a part of the NYS Volunteer Generation Campaign, came in response to the 2011 “Volunteering in America” report that ranked New York last in the nation in volunteer participation rates.

“Many Long Islanders don’t realize that there is a tremendous need that exists right in our own neighborhoods.  Local nonprofits accomplish amazing results given their limited resources and manpower, but imagine what we could achieve if every Long Islander committed to even one hour of volunteer work,” said Diana O’Neill, Executive Director of the Long Island Volunteer Center. “One of the easiest ways to get started is to access our website at www.longislandvolunteercenter.org  where your interests, skills and availability for local volunteer opportunities can be registered.”

Interested Long Islanders can register online to learn about upcoming volunteer projects, including ongoing Sandy recovery efforts.  The Autumn 2013 Volunteer Opportunities list is now available for download on the website.  Click on the link at the bottom of this post to access the listing or go to our website:

The list can be found by scrolling down our Homepage and clicking on “Seasonal Opportunities” listed under “Highlights” on the right-hand side of the page.  As volunteer opportunities are added regularly, registered members will be notified of new projects as they are posted.
