Friends of REACH, the volunteer organization of REACH of Haywood County, Inc., has awarded its Outstanding Volunteer Award to Jim Janke, a three-year volunteer.

Janke modernized the Within REACH Resale Store financial reports and procedures, and was instrumental in developing REACH’s Strategic Plan Database and Volunteer Database.

As a result of his contributions, critical information is readily available and accessible for use in tracking the organization’s progress and making decisions.

“Jim has provided REACH the most valuable of gifts — the gift of time and skills to help us fulfill our mission.  For this, we are most grateful,” said Executive Director Julia Freeman.

Volunteers such as Janke are a vital part of accomplishing the mission at REACH. There are many opportunities to help:

— Supporting REACH clients through a 24-hour Helpline

— Working with the REACH shelter program

— Volunteering at the Within Reach Resale Store

— Joining the REACH special events committee
