At our very successful 2012 MLK Day of Service, we launched a brand new website/blog called www.manyhelpinghands365.org.
Our goal is to list all the non-profit organizations and social service agencies in Cambridge that are actively seeking volunteer help, and to make it easy for individuals to browse through the listings and find ways to help in the areas that most interest them (hunger, homelessness, education, youth, elder care, environment, arts programs etc., etc.). Some groups welcome families with children and teens as volunteers, and we've tagged them as "kid-friendly."
At present, 85 local non-profits and city agencies are listed on the site; if your organization is looking for volunteers and is not listed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our friends at Cambridge Community Television (CCTV) put together this brief PSA video highlighting what our volunteers accomplished at the MLK Day event, and how we hope the new ManyHelpingHands365 site will keep the community's momentum going year-round.
Please take a look at the new site and share the url (www.manyhelpinghands365.org) and video with your friends.
