ChelmsfordVolunteers.org Is Launched!

   Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Chelmsford Volunteers logoA new resource for volunteering in Chelmsford is ready to be used!

ChelmsfordVolunteers.org is a website designed to bring together people who are willing to lend a hand within the community with those organizations who have a need for volunteers.

The Chelmsford Library developed and sponsors it, but ChelmsfordVolunteers.org is really for the community to use and maintain. Organizations can submit their information and volunteer needs, and adults and teens of the town and search to find volunteer opportunities that fit their interests and abilities.

ChelmsfordVolunteers.org is actually two tools in one. First there is a calendar of upcoming events, at which people can volunteer their time. These can range from helping out at the Friends of the Library's book sale to setting up for the Lowell Folk Festival, and be for one hour at a time or an ongoing weekly schedule.

The second component is the Community Information Database, which is sponsored by the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC). This database lists non-profit groups from all over the Merrimack Valley, and includes contact names and information, description of purpose, meeting times, and more.

If you're a volunteer, check out ChelmsfordVolunteers.org to find the volunteer opportunity that is right for you.

If you're an organization and would like to have your group and events listed, please use the event submission form or organization update form. Or, contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks at the Library at kcryanhic@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x109 with questions.
