Volunteer Newsletter

March 25, 2019


Volunteer Northeast Mississippi is excited to tell you about our latest and easiest way to find volunteer opportunities. Nonprofits in 16 counties in Northeast Mississippi have been invited to post their volunteer needs, which means all YOU need to do is go to ONE website to find an opportunity that suits your skills, interests, and schedule. Go to and click on Volunteers Click Here to get started.

This is a new program, so we are in the early stages of getting nonprofits on board. As we get more agencies on the site, you will have more and more volunteer opportunities to choose from. 

Tell your friends about the site, and don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
