Volunteer Hattiesburg is now a service offered within United Way of Southeast Mississippi. With the goal of mobilizing the caring power of the Southeast, Volunteer Hattiesburg serves a volunteer hub for both service agencies and volunteers.
Volunteer Hattiesburg creates the opportunity for volunteers to connect with service agencies online as well as allowing service agencies to promote the needs of their organization to volunteers. This is done through a service called GiveGab. Service agencies and volunteers can create a profile within GiveGab to start connecting. Volunteers can sign up for service opportunities and log their service hours within the system for easy documentation of service. Service agencies can list regular needs of the organization and also post service events in order to recruit more volunteers.
