The mission of the Campbell Culture Coalition is to enhance the economic and cultural opportunities of the citizenry, preserve the culturally significant past, and support the cultural talents of our youth who are our future.

We currently needs volunteers for our annual Louie Bluie Festival, the next of which will be held September 30, 2017. Going into its 11th year, the Louie Bluie Festival is an annual local celebration at Cove Lake State Park in Campbell County that features three tents of Americana music, local juried craft venders and art and quilt displays, which takes place the last Saturday of September (this year September 30). This one day festival is entirely staffed by volunteers - it takes about 150 volunteers to staff many venues - entrance gates, parking, festival store, kids fun zone activities, food court, art pavilion displays, and other volunteer possibilities.

We may also need volunteers for other events or tasks. Please contact us for details.

Caris Healthcare Volunteers make a difference in the lives of Hospice patients and families. Caris needs volunteers in the following areas:

1) Patient and family care volunteers: provide support in the final moments of life, reading and writing letters for the patient, help with Legacy projects such as "Hands of Grace" and scrapbooking, spiritual care and prayer, and bereavement care.

2) Administrative volunteers: work in each local Caris office completing tasks such as filing, making and answering phone calls, or assisting the Volunteer Coordinator.

3) Special project and event volunteers: offer your own talents, expertise, and gifts to patients and families without committing to patient and family contact. For example: Threads of Grace Volunteers make blankets, stuffed animals and other items for comfort of the patient; Youth and Children's groups make crafts or provide acts of service in community such as mowing lawns; clowning or singing groups, memorial services, and health fairs.
