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 20 years, HOTC has placed more than 48,477 volunteers at 3282 project sites benefiting 168,340 non-profits and their clients. That’s a lot of good! Be a part of it…join hands with us today. Watch our video to learn more.
