The Good the Bad and Your Volunteers
The past couple years has created a demand for volunteers that continues to balloon. Fortunately, the increasing number of new challenges and needs that are being experienced by so many are being addressed by nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in our communities. However, with charitable work comes the responsibility of ensuring the safety of your organization, as well as all others who may come into contact with your volunteers.
