SCORE Pittsburgh, on November 14, 2020, staged an online Volunteer Expo, where local volunteer organizations and giving-minded Pittsburghers could come together virtually to give back to the community.
Volunteer Expo – Giving Back to Someplace Special took place online from 9 AM to 3 PM Saturday, November 14th. There, volunteer organizations had virtual booths, with live streaming and lead capture, and potential volunteers with a wide range of skillsets were able to explore opportunities to give back to their community.
The team at SCORE Pittsburgh had a vision. With two exceptions, the event will be just like a job fair:
- First, it will be entirely online, not in person.
- Second, the “job” is giving back to the community and the “pay” is the satisfaction of helping fellow Pittsburghers.
Many congratulations to the SCORE Pittsburgh event team! This event united various organizations in the community, drove awareness for SCORE, and connected volunteers with opportunities to give back during these challenging times.
