The Volunteer Center of Ozaukee County and the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee (NPC) announced today that the Volunteer Center Ozaukee will be managed by the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee in 2017.
“We are very excited about this partnership, because it will enable us to continue to provide the programs and services that our partner agencies and community members have come to rely on,” said Brenda Peterson, outgoing Executive Director of Volunteer Center Ozaukee.
“In fact, they can look forward to more educational and training opportunities being available to nonprofit agencies as NPC expands its programs into Ozaukee County,” said Rob Meiksins, Chief Executive Officer of the Nonprofit Center.
The Nonprofit Center will run the Volunteer Ozaukee programs, including connecting volunteers to needs in the community, promoting and publicizing nonprofit agencies’ needs, providing experts to train Ozaukee County nonprofit leaders and, during the holiday season, providing ways for people to use their holiday spirit by adopting community agencies. Peterson stated that the VCOC Board of Directors and staff believe this is the best course of action for Volunteer Center program delivery in Ozaukee because NPC is dedicated and committed to continuing the Volunteer Center’s mission. Meiksins added that NPC's Volunteer Center has been delivering successfully on the same mission for years, and several Ozaukee County nonprofits have been NPC members.
“This transition provides VCOC and our partner agencies with an opportunity to build on what we already have and engage in strengthening the nonprofit sector in southeast Wisconsin to benefit us all,” Peterson explained. “The Ozaukee community has a tradition of helping those in need. VCOC Board and staff thank you for all your support over the past ten years. We encourage you to continue this tradition by being a part of the Volunteer Center as a volunteer, donor, or partner agency and by supporting the Volunteer Center’s vital mission to serve our community through the collective power of volunteerism.”
