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

Congratulations to Pastor Shawn Blackwelder for winning the 2014 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award  for his work at Carolina Beach Elementary School.  

Award   This award was given for Pastor Blackwelder’s efforts at the St Paul’s Methodist Church Book Drive.  Since literacy is key to personal and professional success and reading at grade level is a significant indicator of doing well and staying in school, the program supports the literacy education efforts at Carolina Beach Elementary School.  To date more than 100 books have been donated.  Additionally, $800 has been raised to purchase reading material for the students.
