SC group encourages volunteers for nonprofits

May 26, 2010 4:09:00 AM - thestate.com
A new group on the South Carolina coast is working to encourage businesses to have their workers volunteer for nonprofit groups.

The Corporate Volunteer Council is being launched on Wednesday by the Trident United Way during a volunteer fair in Charleston.

The council is a coalition of business, government and community leaders working to increase the number of employees who volunteer their time for various organizations.

The volunteer fair is being sponsored by Blackbaud, Inc., which makes software for nonprofit organizations worldwide. Forty local nonprofit groups will be on hand at the company's headquarters on Daniel Island with volunteer opportunities.
