Community Cooperative - Soup Kitchen VolunteersNonprofit organizations in Southwest Florida operate year-round to fulfill their missions. At the heart of every charitable organization is a group of dedicated volunteers offering time and talents to the cause. 

Seniors are among nonprofits’ most loyal volunteers. They have extra time on their hands, a lifetime of experience and a generous spirit. However, many volunteers spend their summers in the North and Midwest, leaving a volunteer void from May through September. 

Priority Marketing partners with dozens of nonprofit organizations serving residents and causes in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. Many are actively seeking volunteers for a variety of roles. 

Below is a brief guide to help match volunteers with nonprofit organizations: 

Research Charitable Causes 

Nonprofits serve a variety of charitable causes, including education, health care, hunger, the environment, animal welfare, poverty, human services, youth, seniors, veterans, arts, culture and more. 

Much like finding a job you love, volunteers should find a cause they love. The best volunteers don’t just provide two or three hours of manpower once a month. They also recruit friends, family and colleagues to join the cause. They post about it on social media. They serve on boards or committees.
