United Way launches new online volunteer center

The United Way of Northeast Arkansas launched its new online volunteer center in Jonesboro Thursday.

Now learning the needs of your community is just a mouse click away.

The project is not only an important improvement to the United Way, but to all the non-profit organizations in Region Eight, including the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas.

Vicki Pillow is the food bank's director of development.  She said they have volunteer opportunities available.  "It's just imperative that we are able to let people know what they are," she said.  "I know there are people out there wanting to volunteer and they just don't know what's out there."
