My Take - Thanks for Volunteering - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

My Take - Thanks for Volunteering

In the wake of the April 27th tornado outbreak, many of our viewers contacted us saying that they wanted to help but could not afford to donate money. So this past Saturday, WAFF48 held the Road to Recovery Valley Volunteer-a-thon, where we asked our viewers to donate their time to local relief efforts. The response was overwhelming. Before our live broadcast even started, you donated more than 48-thousand hours. And by the time the weekend was over, you had donated more than 97-thousand hours. The recovery effort will not be a quick fix and your help will be needed for many months to come. But your generous donations of time have ensured that those who are running local relief efforts will have a wealth of help to draw from as the process continues. I want to thank all those who have joined us on the road to recovery by donating their time. Your generosity and eagerness to help your neighbors has been a bright, shining beacon in our state's moment of darkness. I'm Vanessa Oubre and that's my take. What's yours?
