Fortunately, there are quite a few ways to connect with exciting volunteer opportunities provided by nonprofit organizations located in Georgetown County. Social media and the internet have made it easier than ever to connect!

One of the most comprehensive collections of volunteer opportunities for our county is the Georgetown County United Way’s Get Connected program. Get Connected is a virtual volunteer database that allows you to find service opportunities and events at local nonprofits. Get Connected “connects local people with local organizations to accomplish extraordinary outcomes.” For more information, please visit the Get Connected website at http://getconnected.gcuw.org/.

The Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation also maintains a directory of local organizations that have various volunteer needs. Our Spirit of Giving booklet can be obtained by visiting our Volunteer Center at 8263 Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island. Bunnelle staff are happy to assist you in connecting with any opportunities you find in the directory. For an online version, visit the Nonprofit Directory page on this website.

We hope that these resources serve as a useful “first step” in your search for meaningful volunteer work. Now is as good a time as any to get involved in improving Georgetown County!
