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.
