Visiting volunteers use Volunteer Odyssey Calendar to connect with Memphis


Sometimes, when you’re traveling, the best way to get to know the city you’re visiting is to volunteer.  And that’s exactly what one group from Utah did this July while visiting Memphis.

They found their experience through Volunteer Odyssey’s Calendar of Volunteer Opportunities on our website.  It lists hundreds of opportunities across the cities, seven days a week, at all times of the day. Through our calendar, this group found the perfect volunteer opportunity at Catholic Charities of West Tennessee. Christine Hash, Manager of Social Enterprises and Community Engagement, said the group was looking for a way to connect while in Memphis and the calendar helped them find the perfect opportunity.

This group of volunteers from Utah found their perfect volunteer opportunity in Memphis using Volunteer Odyssey’s Calendar of Volunteer Opportunities. They spent the day volunteering with one of our non-profit partners, Catholic Charities of West Tennesse. 

“They never would have found out about us if it wasn’t for your Calendar of Volunteer Opportunities. Thanks so much for continuing to spread the word about our volunteer opportunities and for giving us the opportunity to add ours to your calendar,” said Hash in an e-mail to Volunteer Odyssey.

The nine from Utah joined more than 70 other volunteers for “Volunteer Saturday,” helping sort clothes for CCWTN’s mobile outreach programs.

Catholic Charities of West Tennessee is the social services arm of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis. They serve people of all ages and all walks of life through their mobile food pantry, clothing closet, veterans services and social enterprise work.

They continue to put volunteer opportunties on the Volunteer Oddyssey Calendar and are always seeking more help.
