As an avid volunteer in our community, when I saw the following list on Facebook’s “Nassau Neighbors Helping Neighbors” page, I just had to share.

This is a new year, and with that often comes New Year’s resolutions. If one of your resolutions is to volunteer more, then this is the list for you. It is a list of many of the non profit organizations in our Nassau County, Florida, community that are in need of volunteers.

To learn more about any of these groups, simply copy and paste the URL located next to each listing. (Some of these pages will require you to have a Facebook page to view.)
