There are many opportunities to do good in the community, many opportunities to give of yourself, your time and your talents. Sometimes, it's not a matter of time, sometimes it's a matter of knowing where volunteer efforts will do the most good.
A?group of enterprising people have taken up the challenge of pairing potential volunteers with projects and programs in need of help. Very Important People helping with Very Important Projects is the name of the program. The committee organizing VIP has made the process of volunteering very simple - just fill out a form. Nonprofit groups seeking help with a project can also fill out a form. Both the volunteer form and the organization form can be returned to the Chamber office. The applications are available at city hall, Fuller Hall, the Chamber office and other locations around the community.
Or skip the paperwork and register online, www.wcvolunteer.org.
The opportunities are endless. Help with the Boone Bash River Dash, volunteer at Van Diest Medical Center, help out at Kendall Young Library or with a youth program. And as more projects are added to the website, the opportunities will continue to grow.
The new VIP?program is a great way to get involved in the community, meet some new people and help some worthy causes.
