Why Register as a Volunteer

It makes sense that organizations logging on to Sarnia Gives would register so that they can post their volunteer opportunities, but why should you register as a volunteer if you’re a member of the community?
When you register with SarniaGives.com, your search criteria are saved for each time you log in to the site. Your profile will always display the opportunities that match your search criteria under the “My Opportunities” heading, saving you the time of completing a search each time you want to view volunteer opportunities.

As the website grows, registering will also mean that you can sign up for our quarterly newsletter or sign-up for the emergency volunteer list and be contacted when an organization has a volunteer shortage and there is not enough to post the opportunity.
