Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
United Way Call Center
Are you looking for a meaningful way to impact our community? United Way of Southwest Alabama's 2-1-1 is looking for volunteers to work in their Call Center. These volunteers will answer calls and provide information on resources in the community such as food pantries, homeless shelters, support groups, summer education programs for children, and many other resources for individuals and families. The network of call centers in Alabama work together when disaster hits to provide vital information to the community. Shelter information, potable water, food and medical services are several of the needs addressed. Shifts are available weekdays, 8am to 4pm. If you are interested in joining their team, please check out How to Help on their website and fill out the volunteer application. You may also email them at email@example.com or call (251) 431-5100 to schedule an interview.
