Individuals who want to learn about volunteer opportunities in their community, can find more than 100 different opportunities through United Way of North Central Massachusetts' Volunteer Center, Community Builders. This week's featured opportunity: friendly phone caller.

Warmer Winters, providing handmade winter items to people in need in the community, seeks friendly phone callers to follow up with our many volunteers. We've grown from 20 to 100 volunteers in three years. Some volunteers become inactive, but a simple phone call letting them know we miss them is all it takes. If you enjoy meeting people, this is the opportunity for you. Phone calls can be made from home and whenever you choose.
