After 20,000 Phone Calls - a farewell to a stellar teammate

You read that blog title right. Since January of 2014, Monika, our team mate and friend, handled more than 20,000 INCOMING phone calls in her role as an information and referral specialist for NC 2-1-1. When we specify "incoming" that means that these are just the calls that came into our call center, what it doesn't include are the thousands and thousands of calls that she made on behalf of those people in our community.

Holiday Volunteerism

At this time of year we get a flurry (pun intended) of requests for volunteer opportunities for the holidays.

Some people are looking to connect with others in what can be a lonely time of the year. Others are wanting to create a shared experience and a culture of service for their children.

Walking the Talk: Stories from the United Way Family

Do you know how it is when you’ve got a REALLY complicated project? You know, the kind of project that has so many moving parts and so many people involved that it takes months of planning and a whole lot of concentration to pull it off?  For some of us, that might be every morning when we’re trying to get the kids out the door, but for our volunteer center staff it is our bi-annual event, Days of Impact (formerly Day of Caring), that fits the bill.
