Thank you to WANE-TV reporter, Michael, for interviewing and doing a feature piece on our work at NeighborLink last week. We have been fortunate to have volunteers complete over 115 projects to date this year, which is ahead of our scheduled goal of doing 1,000 projects in 2017. The number of projects is just a benchmark of progress for us and not our main driving force. We have a strong desire to recruit new communities of volunteers and help our existing volunteers find even more ways to help neighbors. If we do good at that, then we'll hit that 1,000 number.
At the end of the day and at the end of this story, we care about the relationships we get to form over the scale of the projects. We've gotten to meet a great guy in Carl during a difficult season of his life and provide some positivity by helping him overcome some barriers difficult for himself to do alone.
