Flexible Volunteer Opportunities

Would you enjoy the flexibility of being an on-call volunteer? The Johnson Controls Volunteer Center (located in United Way’s Milwaukee office building at 225 W. Vine St.) seeks volunteers to share two to three hours of their time, once or twice a month, to sort and organize school supplies for Backpack Coalition and to bundle packages of diapers collected through its Diaper Bank. Volunteers will receive 5-7 days’ notice ahead of the date they are needed.

The Urban Ecology Center works to inspire generations to build environmental curiosity, understanding, and respect by restoring hope and healing in the urban natural world, neighborhood by neighborhood. Thank you to the Urban Ecology Center for having us onsite!
