The group helps provide week-long experiences to volunteers looking to lend a helping hand in local community. Team members also learn job skills and how to help out other participants. Group leaders say the money will go a long way. "With $10,000, we'll be able to sponsor Volunteer Odyssey weeks for job seekers in the Memphis area," Volunteer Odyssey President and CEO, Sarah Petschonek.
