Volunteer Connections

Volunteer Connections Montcalm-Ionia Counties is a program of United Way Montcalm-Ionia Counties. United Way Montcalm-Ionia Counties' programming is volunteer driven.  Volunteers make things happen in your communities.  Without you, we would not be able to provide the services that we do.  The same applies to our Partners.  In general, United Way Montcalm-Ionia Counites and our Partners are working with fewer financial resources than in the past.  The impact made in our communities relies on people such as yourself and volunteers, who give of their time and skills to support a cause or programs that are important to them.

Last year, Volunteer Connections helped connect over 759 volunteers to our internal programming and that of our Community and Funded Partner Agencies and have facilitated over 1,000 volunteers connecting through events and National Days of Service.  Their volunteer time had a value of over $63,000.
