As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.

Throughout my career I worked most often for non-profits. While most people involved in non-profits had a strong sense of mission it also seemed to attract less than stellar players as well. I am completely bowled over by the staff at MAS. All are smart, dedicated, personable and creative. The result is an agency that provides a wealth of services and has an active role in the community and that has built strong and viable relationships with the community. I am proud to be affiliated with this organization and intend to support them as long as I can.
MAS is a great place to volunteer. The staff is friendly and appreciative and they go out of their way to make volunteers part of the team.
There’s a variety of assignments in community agencies you can choose from, as well as work in the office. I’ve volunteered my whole adult life and MAS, by far, is the best!
