New website helps businesses manage volunteer efforts

A new website launched by Synovus Bank, Client Focused Media and HandsOn Jacksonville aims to help local companies and service organizations be better volunteers.
Called It’, the website allows nonprofit organizations to register their needs for volunteers and one-time projects — as well as other continuing needs for goods and services. The site is designed to help companies seeking to meet volunteer goals link up with and fulfill local nonprofit needs.
The site also is open to individuals who want to donate their time and service.
In a release, HandsOn Jacksonville referenced Bailey’s Powerhouse Gyms in Northeast Florida as an example of a local company utilizing the new online system. The company has 11 locations in the area and established a partnership with HandsOn Jacksonville through the new website. The company pledged 5,000 volunteer hours for the upcoming year.
“It’sTimeWeDonate made sense for us because it gives our gym employees and members across the Jacksonville community a variety of opportunities and options to get involved by giving back,” said gym owner David Bailey, in the release.
Volunteer pledges for each company are tracked on the website and Synovus Bank presents a volunteer of the month award to the company whose employees have logged the most hours. The winners receive recognition in trade publications.
