MARTIN COUNTY -- United Way of Martin County's Martin Volunteers program was awarded a $14,000 grant from the Hobe Sound Community Chest.
The investment will help Martin Volunteers apply the skills and expertise of volunteers to have a positive impact on the lives of others while easing the workload of overtasked service providers.
"This generous grant will be applied to expand our outreach in southern Martin County and offer scholarships for services like the Florida Volunteer Resource Managers program or the nonprofit consulting services of the Executive Service Corps program," said Carol Hodnett, director of Martin Volunteers.
Martin Volunteers' mission is to engage people of all ages and backgrounds in volunteer service that enriches the individual and strengthens the community. It also serves as the clearinghouse for volunteerism in Martin County.
