NeighborLink Service Day - July 5th
This is just one example of the positive responses from homeowners that NeighborLink has helped this past year. This year 231 volunteer projects have been completed and people like Viola have received a tangible expression of God’s love in their lives. Even though we have made great strides, there are still 470 available projects that need to be completed. Hundreds of neighbors are still waiting to be helped.
Team NeighborLink has been an effective asset by which projects like these are possible. As our loyal supporters buy gear, participate in events, and advocate for NeighborLink, they help us grow and continue to have a positive impact on the community. Through our interactions with athletes over the years, we have discovered that many of their characteristics closely resemble that of our NeighborLink volunteers. Our events are specifically designed to create a unique experience for people that are willing to try something different. Many of our participants are motivated and adventurous people who are not afraid to get out of their comfort zone. Similarly, our volunteers normally display this same kind of bold, independent behavior.
As a result, we have a strong desire to bridge the gap between athletes and volunteers. You may think getting involved sounds like a good idea, but you don’t know where to start. In response, we want to give athletes a chance to see first hand how the funds from our events are invested back in the community. Our desire is to create an opportunity for our athletes to use their God-given abilities to do more than just train, but directly aid those who need a helping hand.
On July 5th, NeighborLink Fort Wayne will be holding a Service Day where you can come out and help a neighbor in need. At 5:30, we will be meeting at the NeighborLink office and then going into the community to scrape and paint a garage door for a homeowner that needs our help. If you have ever wanted a taste of what it is like to get involved in NeighborLink Fort Wayne or just did not know how to get started, this is the perfect opportunity for you. We hope to see you there!
