Partnership Celebrates Launch of New Website with Volunteer Work Day
The United Way of Madison County and corporate sponsor First Commercial Bank are celebrating the launch of a new, improved website for the Volunteer Center of Madison County by hosting a volunteer work day. First Commercial Bank volunteers will paint rooms and build picnic tables from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 25, at one of United Way's partner organizations, The Arc of Madison County, 1100 Washington Street, in Huntsville.
The new website, www.thevolunteercentermc.org, is made possible through the corporate sponsorship of First Commercial Bank of Huntsville, a division of Synovus Bank.
Beth Sippel, President and CEO of First Commercial Bank Huntsville, said, "Our First Commercial Bank team is excited about our partnership with United Way and the Volunteer Center of Madison County. Our bank has a deep commitment to strengthening this community and our hope is that through our support of the Volunteer Center, more people will give their time and talents to nonprofits in Madison County.”
United Way of Madison County provides this online resource so volunteers can easily look for community volunteer opportunities. This free resource, which was originally launched in 2010, now has a more user-friendly interface.
Through the new website, The Volunteer Center provides access to nearly 150 registered nonprofits around Madison County and over 1,500 volunteers are registered on the site and looking to give back to the community.
