Seeking Volunteers?

GetConnected |

GetConnected is United Way’s website that hosts Douglas and Pope County volunteer needs from local non-profits. Douglas and Pope County non-profits are welcome to use this website to promote their volunteer opportunities.

This year we are seeing up to 674 needs being viewed in just one month! This website is promoted in local businesses and through the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce. Users seeking volunteer opportunities can create a profile, choose their favorite organizations and receive email updates when new opportunities are added.

The more non-profits actively posting on this website, the better! When new volunteer needs are posted users get an email nudge to check out the website again. It’s a win-win.
