Empowering non-profits. Connecting volunteers. Building communities.\n\nVolunteer Center of South Jersey\n856-415-9084
In 2016, we took advantage of some innovative opportunities, including a partnership with Fundly, a leading software developer in Silicon Valley. VCSJ’s technical writing team has led the way for Volunteer Action Centers across the country with their User Guide publications. Also this year, VCSJ set out to redevelop the website with our partner TechStarters, providing visitors with even more resources and opportunities. It is a site chock full of information and can be easily accessed from any mobile device. In addition, we have engaged in a skills-based volunteer effort to create a dynamic communications team, here at VCSJ, that is 100% donated time and services. To this group of professionals, who has made a huge impact in our community outreach efforts, we are forever grateful.
In October, VCSJ with their non-profit partners, recognized over 60 volunteers for their dedication and passion at the annual Spirit of Community volunteer recognition event at the Mansion in Voorhees. We encourage you to nominate someone you know that gives back with "spirit and passion". Nominations will open up in January for the 2016-17 year.
Finally, we remain steadfast in our Family Volunteering Campaign, supported by the Family Strengthening Network, Pascale Sykes Foundation, Investors Bank Foundation and other local grants and sponsorships. Last month on November 19th, VCSJ and 125 people throughout the day that participated in the event (500 volunteer hours). Their efforts resulted in:
And in on May 19th, 20th and 21st, 2017, the 4th Annual South Jersey Family Day of Service will take place across our 7 county region, connecting thousands of volunteers to hundreds of projects. Stay tuned for more information.
In closing and on behalf of the Board of Directors at VCSJ, I extend the warmest of wishes for a wonderful holiday season. We look forward to a healthy and happy new year and we continue our commitment to serve in 2017.
Yours in service,
Michele Epifani, VCSJ Executive Director
