Each year, National Volunteer Week falls in April. But the needs of the metro are too overwhelming to contain in one week. So, SHARE Omaha is declaring April (do)GOOD month in the Omaha metro! 

Will you commit to volunteer in April for (do)GOOD month?
You can start small, sampling an opportunity on SHARE Omaha. Or, in true metro fashion, you can go big. Get your whole office involved or take on a project that uses your skills to the fullest. No matter how you choose to start, send your interest to one of our local nonprofits today.
