Family Volunteering Day

family-volunteer-day-logo_2012-558x140

Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that demonstrates and celebrates the power of families who volunteer together, supporting their neighborhoods, communities and the world.

Points of Light created the day 22 years ago to showcase the benefits of family volunteering and provide opportunities for families to help communities create supportive environments for their children and each other. This year Family Volunteer Day takes place on November 22 and is being sponsored by Disney Friends for Change and powered by generationOn.

Family Volunteer Day is strategically held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to “kick-off” the holiday season with giving and service. It also signals the start of National Family Week, sponsored by the Alliance for Children and Families and the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Families that volunteer together not only address community social problems, but also strengthen themselves. Volunteering together as a family provides quality time, strengthens family communication and provides opportunities for family members to be role models.

Your Help Is Requested

8/10/14
Dear Contributor,

I am writing to ask you to consider a donation of time, resources, or money to the Cape Fear Volunteer Center’s Big Buddy Program. This program and its volunteers annually make a significant contribution to the youth of our community by improving themselves personally, in their homes, in school and their future in our community. Many of these children were “at risk”. After our mentoring program, most leave our volunteers to become positive community members and the new citizens of the Cape Fear region.

Currently, there are more than 200 youth participants in the Big Buddy Program from New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender County. If you decide to become a contributor to our the Big Buddy Program you will be recognized on our social media sites, in our e newsletter, you will receive recognition at the more than twenty events we hold each year, and in the many releases we provide to the media.

The Cape Fear Volunteer Center works to recruit and train the volunteers who have served as mentors, motivators, role models and guides for 45 years and have helped over 2,300 children. To continue this history of success your support is vitally important. We need funding to support programming for Big and Little Buddies, to provide resources that our Case Managers can distribute as needed and provide professional services.

You can be among the many who consider a gift or ongoing contribution to the Cape Fear Volunteer Center on behalf of the Big Buddy program. If you have services or supplies we can use please consider contributing them as well

Finally, we would appreciate your support in recruiting Big Buddy volunteers from among your staff, and would gladly provide a presentation to your staff or organization. Also, if you know of any children who can benefit from our program, let us know. Additional information and forms to apply to become either a Big Buddy or Little Buddy are available on our website, www.capefearvolunteercenter.org

For additional information about the Big Buddy program, or to provide further details, please call me.

Thank you,
