Delaware, Ohio – Connections Volunteer Center (Connections), a program of HelpLine, is celebrating 25 years of service to the Delaware County community.
Founded in 1996 through a grant provided by the United Way of Delaware County and SourcePoint (then Council for Older Adults), Connections opened its doors at the Andrews House – where it’s still located today – to match volunteers of all ages and backgrounds with meaningful experiences.
Today, Connections coordinates the referral and placement of volunteers for more than 60 different agencies who offer hundreds of ongoing and special event opportunities.
“We’re always excited to connect volunteers with local needs. Volunteers are essential to nonprofit agencies and volunteering is also a great way to stay physically and emotionally healthy. It’s a win-win,” said Suzanne Pingry, Program Director at Connections Volunteer Center.
