Our mission is to connect citizens as volunteers to non-profit and community agencies, needs, and service opportunities in Thomas County, Georgia. We do so through daily volunteer opportunities and signature Annual Events & Programs which promote community involvement and empowerment. No matter your age, background, abilities, or schedule, there is a volunteer opportunity for you. HOTC can help get you connected!
In 2003, HOTC was founded by Mrs. Alston Watt with a simple goal: to help people navigate the many needs and non-profits in Thomas County. Every day, we help match individuals, families, businesses and groups to appropriate volunteer projects. We also partner with the many local non-profits and community agencies to promote their mission and help fulfill their volunteer needs.
What began as one person with a vision and one big volunteer event day has evolved into a community-wide movement with 11 annual volunteer programs and event days. Over the past 17 years, HOTC has placed more than 36,000 volunteers at 2150 project sites benefiting 118,000 individuals and non-profits. That’s a lot of good! Be a part of it…join hands with us today. Watch our latest video to learn more.

After two weeks of recharging, we are back at it again! I can definitely say it is good to be back. I was able to get right back into the groove and focus on the two service projects I had this week with The Boys and Girls Club and Vashti’s Ventures and Connections.
When it rains, it pours! And it sure did pour the week of June 21st, but the rain didn’t keep us down during our second week of Project Impact Outreach. Boy, our summer of service just keeps getting better and better!
