Cape Fear Volunteer Center Fashion Show Fundraiser Committee
Cape Fear Volunteer Center would like to put together a committee to help plan our 2014 fundraiser. The fundraiser will be a fashion show at the end of February.
- Committee members must commit to a meeting once weekly to work together to plan this event. Members will also need to be able to commit to checking their e-mail, text messages, etc. regularly, as one discussion a week will not be enough to prepare for the event.
- We are looking for people with an interest in: event planning, working with a team, fashion, helping a non-profit organization, helping to gain donations of food, desserts, decorations, etc.
- What the committee will do: plan the agenda of the event, gain donations of foods, desserts, vendors, etc., make and put out fliers and invitations, etc.
Meetings will begin after Thanksgiving and will be held on either Wednesday or Thursday afternoons (depending on member’s schedules). We can be flexible in meeting time, so if you have a conflict please let me know as soon as possible so we can set our meeting time around it!
If you have any questions feel free to contact Emily Schweer at (319) 415-5384 or [email protected]

2014 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community.
Each county selects up to ten individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid Director of Volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities. One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations.

Meals on Wheels Needs Volunteers!
Meals on Wheels NEEDS VOLUNTEERS!
How it works:
Meal pick up is between 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. (But if you are working or need to make arrangements to pick up slightly later, arrangements may possible be made). You will be given your route’s clipboard (includes your delivery list + directions), donated newspapers, your food bags, and then be sent on your way! Once your route is complete, simply pull back into line and hand over your clipboard and empty food bags. You can sign up to drive a regular route (the same route, on the same day, each week) or you can sign-up for the substitute list and called for subbing. The 300 clients are split into roughly 30 routes, so that no one should deliver to more than 8-10 houses. Routes are based on vicinity. The whole process typically takes less than 2 hours..
