Some updates on past areas

Cedar Rapids:
"Volunteers in Cedar Rapids not only worked to restore flood-damaged properties, they gave blood, donated money and material to shelters and food pantries, delivered meals to the elderly on those in need, shoveled snowy sidewalks and basically performed any tasks that needed to be done.

This year’s Day of Service was expected to be the largest in national history because Obama mobilized his grassroots network — a network forged and developed in Iowa during the caucus season — to give of themselves to their communities."

Port Neches allows volunteer village:
"A temporary volunteer village will be constructed on the property of Trinity Presbyterian Church under a one-year contract, a move allowed by the Port Neches City Council in its regular meeting Thursday.

The volunteers are coming to town to help victims of Hurricane Ike in Bridge City, Sabine Pass and other affected areas who now are trying to rebuild."
