United Way of Door County launches Volunteer Connections

Connecting your interests with some of the area’s non-profit organizations is the goal of a new program launched by the United Way of Door County this month. Volunteer Connections is a place on the organization’s website where non-profits can post their different opportunities. The site fills a void left in the community by the Volunteer Center of Door County, which dissolved in 2019. Thanks to the pandemic, a recent survey done by U.S. Census Bureau and Americorps showed that volunteer participation dropped seven percent to 23.2 percent between 2019 and 2021, which is the largest recorded drop since statistics were first kept in 2002. United Way of Door County Executive Director Amy Kohnle says the need is there to help non-profits find the people they need to flourish.

Kohnle added that they are looking to collaborate with the Door County Fire Chief’s Association, which was able to establish a volunteer roster of over 1,000 people during the pandemic. You can click on this link to find volunteer opportunities or, if you’re involved with a non-profit, post one of your own.
