This was an incredible increase from 2012, which had 423 volunteers helping 21 organizations. This year's efforts resulted in an estimated 2300 volunteer hours generously given to accomplish tasks that ranged from cleaning, painting and landscaping, to roof shingling, tree removal and electrical projects.
