If you're looking for a way to give back to your community, the Florida Keys may have just the thing for you.
The Community Foundation of the Florida Keys has launched the Florida Keys Volunteer Center, a website that allows nonprofits in the Keys to post volunteer opportunities and for visitors and residents to browse and register for volunteer shifts, the Florida Weekly reports.
