Local Resident Makes a Commitment to His City
By: We Can Make a Difference
Begun at the end of July, an important goal of these daily acts of kindness is to help jump-start new volunteer ideas in the community, while showing just how easy it is to make a positive impact on our community and society, says We Can Make a Difference Director Mick Manley, a local Farmers Insurance agent.
"While Nebraska is in the top 10 for percentage of people volunteering, Omaha is not in the top 50 of cities. Bringing Omaha into the top 50 could push our state into one of the top 5 spots, enhancing our resolve and demonstrating how much we care about others," Manley says.
Since these are daily acts, getting involved is very easy. Just one hour, once per year from every adult in the Omaha Metro Area is the equivalent of 15,000 full weeks of volunteer effort. We Can Make a Difference wants to make it easy to get involved in hopes that it will encourage new and repeat volunteers, not just for We can Make a difference but, also, all the non-profits in greater Omaha.
