St. Louis, MO, August 25, 2018 –(PR.com)– Operation Food Search (OFS), a non-profit hunger relief organization, recently began working with Galaxy Digital, a mobile-friendly volunteer management software company based in Asheville, NC.

OFS is St. Louis’ first non-profit agency to use the company’s Community Connect program, which matches volunteers with the most relevant service opportunities within the organization. Galaxy Digital’s program offers easy-to-use volunteer scheduling and management, as well as promotes ongoing engagement and communication in order to elevate brand awareness within the community.

“This very interactive software program allows us to get connected and stay connected with our volunteers,” said Sunny Schaefer, Executive Director at Operation Food Search. “We heavily rely on our more than 7,500 volunteers who donate over 22,000 hours each year, and this software will enable us to reach out and engage our volunteer base as efficiently as possible.”
