Bookmark and Share

United Way of Central Carolinas is featuring CIS volunteer Leslie Bridger and the CIS student she tutors to help promote National Volunteer Week (April 21-27, 2013).  This past fall, United Way initiated "Project 1000," an effort to recruit 1,000 volunteers for the93 agencies United Way supports. The agency has recruited about 200 volunteers so far, including Leslie Bridger, who chose CIS as the agency she wanted to support.

Leslie works full time for United Healthcare, but every Tuesday, she spends an hour tutoring and reading with Marlin, a third grader in CIS at Montclaire Elementary School. Check out this video (below) of Leslie and Marlin to see the impact  - on both volunteer and child - that just one hour a week can have.

More volunteers are needed, especially those interested in mentoring or tutoring children and youth. Please contact our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (or call 704.943.9536) to learn how YOU can make a difference!
