An Elkhart, Ind., effort to connect volunteers with places to serve keeps growing. Acts of Service, developed by Lippert Components Inc. CEO Jason Lippert, connects volunteers with nonprofits, and 21 businesses have already partnered with the resource.

AOS members have logged more than 200,000 volunteer hours doubling its original goal.

ABC 57 reported that Acts of Service connects volunteers with nonprofits, helps groups set team goals, and records volunteer hour all while making a difference in the community.

“I see and hear the feedback from our people, and the most common comments that I get is you know, ‘I’ve never served before and going out to the serving event that we had last week transformed me than the people I was there to serve,’ or ‘My kids came along side who have never served before and man, I’m glad we had this opportunity to do that because they may not have gotten the opportunity if I worked at a different company,’” Lippert said.

Organizers say anyone can get involved with Acts of Service. To learn more or volunteer click here.
