Communities In Action has grown tremendously since 2008! We have formed relationships with more community partners and now work to find volunteers for over 50 nonprofit organizations in Wake County. Additionally, we now have over 260 volunteers participating in our program. We have also started working with our county government and the local Red Cross chapter on a volunteer mobilization plan in the event a hurricane or other disaster strikes our community; Over two-thirds of the volunteers who sign up for our program say that they are willing to be called upon to assist in the event of a disaster. Finally, we are pleased to announce that our fundraising efforts for this program have allowed us hire a Communities In Action Coordinator. With the increased time and effort he will be able to input into this program, we hope to have around 500 volunteers by early next year.
