Hitting the 500 mark!

July 16th, 2013 lnchin14

Friday was the agency deadline to submit projects for Day of Caring and be entered to win a raffle, so for most of the week I was busy answering questions on the phone, responding to various e-mails, and resetting account passwords. It was great to speak with people from throughout the community who were excited for Day of Caring (while many were also frustrated that they could not enter their project online, “Why is registration so complicated?”). And when I left on Friday afternoon, we had projects of all sorts and slots for over 500 volunteers! Projects are continuing to trickle in and the event is really coming together. This week I will be busy calling agencies who participated last year and giving them another friendly reminder (I feel as though I may be driving some of them a bit crazy!) to think about their projects and get them registered ASAP. Hoping to reach projects for 700 volunteers by the end of the week!
