Volunteerism/Charitable Acts Are Increasing
Since 2011, our volunteer numbers and charitable impacts have both increased by at least 20% every year. We project 1,200 volunteers and over 2,500 lives touched in positive ways in 2017.
Lives Are Being Touched
Testimonies of those who volunteer/give and those who receive tell a story that numbers can’t. Youth are pledging to volunteer for life. Donors ($5 to $50K) enjoy direct connections to those in need. Neighbors in need express hope and joy that people of all ages and walks of life have formed a force to lift them.
