VOMO was also a crucial component of the recent 1DayLA week of service, which saw over 20,000 volunteers provide 120,000+ service hours throughout the city.

FREMONT, CA: VOMO, a cloud-based volunteer management tool powering over 250,000 service projects globally, and Stand Together, a philanthropic community that invests in social entrepreneurs tackling some of the biggest challenges of our times, has declared a partnership to extend access to volunteer engagement opportunities across L.A. and beyond via VOMO's custom volunteer management platform. This game-changing online software gives one the tools one needs to start service projects, connect with community concerns, and measure and amp up the impact of one's volunteering. Navigating possibilities to affect one's local community is as simple as utilizing one's preferred social networking site, as it is a one-stop-shop for all things volunteering.

VOMO was also a crucial component of the recent 1DayLA week of service, which saw over 20,000 volunteers provide 120,000+ service hours throughout the city. Because of this collaboration, platform users can now continue the momentum of service and stay connected in their communities with only a few taps on their phones.

"VOMO is the number one platform to do good, connecting willing volunteers to local service opportunities for maximum impact around L.A. and the nation. We are proud to be a part of projects like 1DayLA to mobilize a generation, and this just marks the beginning as we help make service a lifestyle," stated Rob Peabody, CEO and co-founder of VOMO.

L.A. is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the partnership's potential, acting as a model for establishing a similar grassroots infrastructure of groups and volunteers mobilized to fight poverty in other major cities across the country. VOMO's experience with similar endeavors has yielded remarkable results. During the national "Be A Neighbor" campaign in 2020, the VOMO platform was made free and available to any group or volunteer who wanted to serve during the COVID-19 pandemic. This campaign alone resulted in approximately 260,000 volunteer hours from 171,000+ platform users and 1,730 non-profit organizations, resulting in an $8.7 million economic effect.
