Community Update: 4/29/20

Anyone familiar with our United Way knows just how crucial volunteers are to our day to day operations. And, having operated our volunteer center since the early 1970s, we've learned a thing or two about the importance of running a coordinated effort to really make the best use of people's time and talents. 

That's why we were honored when Buncombe County's Emergency Operations Center team asked us to manage some key areas of work during this health crisis.  

In addition to the crucial role our NC 2-1-1 team members are playing to get high quality and factual information out to residents about COVID-19 and available health and human resources, our volunteer center is also taking center stage organizing community response efforts. 

In this week's video, Dan shares a bit about his own personal experience volunteering at a food pantry in Candler as well as providing some stats about community response. Check it out:
