Between sorting clothing, organizing donations, tutoring kids, coaching teams, serving meals, stacking cans, and helping during Christmas, volunteers gave over 55,000 hours of their time in 2013. To show their appreciation during National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, the Salvation Army of Wake County will hosted a dessert party on Tuesday, April 8 at the Judy D. Zelnak Center of Hope at 1863 Capital Blvd. Volunteers and their families came in between 3pm-6pm for a sweet treat including a candy bar and home baked goods from the staff.

One Girl's Experience On The Run

Ana Harris, a 10 year old with curly hair and glasses – whose favorite subject is math, started coming to The Salvation Army Community Center’s After School Program in August of 2013. Most of her fellow school mates come to the Community Center as well. Here they are greeted each day by the staff, receive help with homework and participate in a number of different activities. Ana immediately comments on the counselors, “they’re nice. They express how God created the world, and it’s nice.” She likes all of the different opportunities and clubs that are offered, including Girls on the Run.
