Have you been looking for ways to get involved and make a difference? There are myriad opportunities for service to the community, but it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to matching your skills and interests with the need. Fortunately, there are a couple of new ways for you to learn about volunteer opportunities and to get involved:
First, check out Trinity’s newly revised and updated Reach Out and Serve booklet. Copies are available in the Narthex.
Another option is to explore the United Way of Henderson County’s Volunteer Matching Program—an online, mobile-friendly portal within UWHC’s public website, listing volunteer opportunities at non-profit agencies located in Henderson County. Members of the public can now view and apply online for volunteer positions that fit their skills and interests. Access the site by visiting and click on the “volunteer” button.
