Volunteer Northwest Mississippi also wants to spend a few minutes helping you and your organization better understand our online Volunteer Matching System, GiveGab. You are welcome to arrive at Noon for the 45 minute training session on GiveGab or you can plan to stay after the workshop from 4:00-4:45.
GiveGab is free to use so please plan to sit in on a session so that you can learn how to better promote your organization online, recruit volunteers, and spread your mission.
