The Network

Super busy but still want to make a difference?

What is the Network?

The Network is a ministry of the Rescue Mission focused on micro-volunteer opportunities that require little time and no long-term ongoing commitments, yet make a big impact in the community.


What is micro-volunteering?

Micro-volunteering is bite-sized volunteering. Anything from serving food, working a registration table at the Drumstick DASH, to sharing a Facebook post or tweet with your friends and family.


How can I make an impact?

• Volunteer some time
• Get your friends, co-workers and family to volunteer too
• Attend a meeting and brainstorm new opportunities
• Share on social media
