Help Joshua Bolt
Joshua is a brilliant, funny, and joyful ten-year-old! He reads, draws, writes poetry, solves math equations, creeps, climbs, and stacks things!
He also has a severe brain injury. His brain injury is commonly called cerebral palsy. The Bolt family is implementing an intensive home-based program of physical, intellectual, and social development for Joshua. This treatment program is prescribed by The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (www.iahp.org).
The Bolts need fun-loving volunteers both to help and to play! There are even some projects you can help with from a distance.
Facebook Group: "Joshua Needs You"
F.A.C.E.S., an organization run strictly by volunteers, provides weekly food distribution from its pantry to eligible members in the Farmville-Prince Edward area. It distributes over 500 bags of food 52 weeks a year to its client base. Volunteers can assist with unloading and sorting shipments of food on Thursday mornings from 9am-noon. Another need is Thursday night 'bagging parties' from 5pm-7pm, when bags of food are filled for Saturday's distribution. FACES accepts volunteers on a limited basis from 7.30 to 11 a.m. Saturdays. If you are coming on Saturdays as a group of more than five people, please call the facility on Friday morning after 10 at 392-6277 first, as they often have too many volunteers on a Saturday.

The Youth Empowerment Center, an afterschool tutoring program located across the street from the Daily Grind in downtown Farmville, is currently looking for student volunteers who have experience in accounting/book keeping and/or research and grant writing.
If you are interested in working with the YEC in this capacity, please contact Jackie Lester-Ghee at email@example.com
