In January, we implemented a nomination process, where visitors to clickingcreateschange.com could nominate an Athens County nonprofit organization for our consideration. It was our goal to give community members input in the organization selection process. We had 1,185 individual nominations. From this list of organizations, we were able to choose the four who had the most nominations. The remainder of the organizations will remain on the nomination page for upcoming years and hopefully serve as a hub where people can look up organizations with whom they can volunteer.
This morning, we announced our chosen organizations for 2012 on Sandy Shirey's local radio show, Volunteer Action. Now, we're excited to announce (on our blog and website!) that we will be working with the following nonprofits to help tell their unique stories and spread their messages:
- Hocking-Athens Perry Community Action (HAPCAP)
- Rural Action Inc: Watershed Restoration
- The Gathering Place
- United Campus Ministry (UCM)
You can visit http://www.clickingcreateschange.com/announcement/ to see this announcement as well.
Our collaboration with these organizations will commence this week and continue through the end of May, so be sure to continue following our progress here on the blog over the next two months.
