Community members volunteered 2,000 hours for RAGBRAI

Christoph Trappe

Thank you to the community for coming out in force to help with RAGBRAI in Cedar Rapids on July 26 and 27, 2012!

In all, 700 community members filled 900 shifts and volunteered 2,000 hours! The independent sector values those hours at $43,580!

Wow. Thank you!

Volunteers helped with everything from sign removal, staffing information booths to giving riders direction.

"This event was another indicator of how great this community is," said Sue Driscoll, United Way's volunteer manager. "We hope everyone stays involved and continues to volunteer. You can find volunteer opportunities at UnitedWayofEastCentralIowa.org/VolunteerNow."
