Volunteerism is very important to us here at Patch.
In fact, the company gives employees five paid days per year to perform important volunteer work in our Patches, as well as donating 5 percent of our ad inventory to local charitable organizations (please contact us to see if you qualify).
Berkley Patch also provides those seeking volunteer opportunities and charitable organizations seeking help with a free place to connect.
Our next "Give 5" volunteer day will be Feb. 9 and we'd like to hear from you! Leave a comment to suggest where Berkley Patch Editor Leslie Ellis should spend the day giving her time!
