Individuals who want to learn about volunteer opportunities in their community can find more than 100 opportunities through United Way of North Central Massachusetts' Volunteer Center, Community Builders.

This week's featured opportunity: Central Massachusetts Disaster Animal Response Team is seeking volunteers to help respond to animals' needs during emergencies.

In addition to physical responders, CMDAR needs volunteers to do outreach and, of course, fundraising.

Are you a veterinarian or vet tech? A farmer? A legal professional? A salesperson? Can you drive a truck with a trailer hitch?
