The amazing thing that comes naturally from your volunteer day and initiatives are the relationships; relationships not only with a wide range of volunteers, but also businesses, nonprofits, congregations, schools, and leaders in your city.
You will become known in your city for the ways you are connected with members across the community and people will be coming to you when needs arise. The best part? You already have all the connections and resources required to meet the needs of your city. You can mobilize volunteers, connect businesses with schools in need of supplies, bring together congregations to serve the homeless, the list goes on and on.
Through all of your efforts, you will come to have influence in your city as the best organization to bridge the gap across all sectors to connect those in need to those who can help.
