Be a Volunteer

Put Your Passion Into Action!

We believe that everyone can find an organization or a cause that they are passionate about - and they can help to strengthen the community in so many ways by getting involved.

Recognizing the powerful role that volunteerism plays in keeping our communities strong, the Office Depot Foundation has created the Caring Connection - a user-friendly, online resource that makes it simple to learn about and enroll in thousands of volunteer opportunities. Also, non-profit organizations that use volunteers to help them carry out their programs can register for free to list their opportunities directly on the website.

The Office Depot Foundation presents the Caring Connection in collaboration with VolunteerMatch. The website provides access to information about 55,000 volunteer positions offered by more than 60,000 non-profit organizations across the United States. Site visitors just need to enter their zip code to see a list of volunteer opportunities available in their area.
