Our fourth annual Volunteer-a-Thon is coming up on April 13-14, 2018!
Over a 26.2-hour period, League members, their families, and community members will perform service projects for a number of local non-profit organizations. The projects will include office work and physical projects like spring cleaning and landscaping. At the conclusion of the marathon of service, participants will gather at Carrier Park to share their experiences and a meal. Volunteer-a-Thon will begin at 1pm on Friday, April 13 and conclude at 4:12 pm on Saturday, April 14.
Volunteer-a-Thon is a fundraiser for the League which supports our mission of helping women perfect leadership skills through volunteerism and improving our community. In 2016, the estimated value of a volunteer hour in North Carolina was $22.99. Using this metric, League members will seek pledges from family, friends, and community members to support our service.
If you would like to support the League financially in connection with this event, please visit our Crowdrise page (link coming soon) or consider serving as a corporate sponsor. We also welcome community member participation in this day of service. To join us, please register here on or before March 25, 2018. Participants in Volunteer-a-Thon will be given a free t-shirt and enjoy a meal at Carrier Park. Although you may join us at no charge, we ask that participants consider raising a minimum of $22.99 (approximately the amount charged for marathons and other races). The money that you raise helps to support our mission, and we are grateful for your financial support.
