Patterned on dating craze, event will match individuals with nonprofits
BY MARICELLA MIRANDA
Looking for volunteers? You've got three minutes to sell your nonprofit.
After giving your pitch, a potential volunteer says whether you two are a match or it's a dud. If sparks fly, you've got a free, pair of helping hands for your group.
Sound like a date? It sort of is.
Local organizations on Tuesday will participate in their first Volunteer Speed Match event — modeled after the speed-dating craze. Interested individuals will drill 16 groups on available volunteer opportunities in hopes of finding their perfect match. If they do, it's up to the organizations to make a move by dialing their number."
