The Harrisonburg/ Rockingham Chamber of Commerce debuted its new volunteer center, but don't look for a building. It's an online database that allows volunteers and people looking for them to find each other.
The website was started by the community leadership group which is part of the chamber. There is no cost to access the database.
"There are a lot of people and a lot of groups that do want to give of their time, but its hard for them to know what projects there are either on a given day that they are available for or that is in their area of interest and this actually lets you search by date or by area of interest," says Christine Michaels Executive Director of the chamber.
The web address is www.hrchamber.org/volunteer.
