Get Connected – Volunteer Opportunities

get connected B

Visit our new Get Connected Virtual Volunteer Center and learn how you can make a difference in our community.  Search for volunteer opportunities, job openings, and fun events and information about the nonprofit agencies serving our area.  Sign up, become a fan, respond to a need, or RSVP to an event.

By creating a venue that allows individuals to see the many ways they can make a difference and gives agencies opportunities to promote their needs, the Matagorda County United Way has increased the potential for volunteerism, donations, and involvement in the community.

Nonprofits and charities in Matagorda and Wharton counties post events, volunteer needs and other information online in hopes of increasing opportunities for community members to get involved. United Way agencies were the first to join, but the system is now open to all nonprofit organizations.

Matagorda County United Way hopes that “Get Connected” will give nonprofits a boost by providing another avenue to promote their missions and activities, solicit volunteers and donations, and even advertise job openings.  It will also provide easy access for people looking for opportunities to get involved.  With a variety of search features, people going to the site can look for activities that match their preferences and schedules.

If someone has an interest in pursuing an opportunity they find at “Get Connected,” they can send an inquiry or RSVP for an event directly to the agency involved.

Users can go to to respond to needs currently listed on line by United Way Agencies.  Responding to needs is easy and can change a life.

Interested agencies or anyone wanting information should contact the Matagorda County United Way at (979) 245-5852.  There is no cost to participate and the system is very user friendly.  United Way staff will offer technical assistance if needed.
