peggsit Volunteer Section goes live
August 02, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsSan Francisco, C.A. — August 2, 2011 — peggsit has opened its Volunteer Section, becoming the first online jobs board to introduce a volunteer portal. Users can apply to a number of volunteer gigs including festivals, street fairs, music & entertainment acts, fundraisers and other charitable endeavors.
Built to put Americans back to work one gig at a time, peggsit is a marketplace for short-term assignments. A two-way exchange, we connect people looking for work with individuals and small businesses interested in hiring workers. Typical gigs include IKEA Furniture Assembly, Moving Help, Housecleaning and Pet Sitting. With our Volunteer Section, peggsit continues to innovate on the idea that technology can be used for social good.
"peggsit is more than a marketplace where our users exchange services," says Michael Peggs, founder and chief executive officer of peggsit. "We are engaged participants invested in the success of our local communities. It's important to offer conveniences that save time and energy, but its also crucial that we give some of it back. Our new Volunteer Section offers our users a platform to support their neighbors and develop our communities."
Comprised of college students, stay-at-home parents, young professionals and retirees, peggsit is open to Bay Area residents and has helpers from San Jose to Sonoma ready and willing to get the job done. To learn more and post a gig, visit peggsit.com/gigs.
