THE 2013 VITAL SIGNS REPORT
In 2013, working with County residents and many local organisations, the County Community Foundation (CCF) issued the first ever PEC Vital Signs Report to provide fact-based information about issues affecting the well-being of County families and residents. Addressing our strengths, our challenges, and the opportunities to address these challenges, the Report has already had an impact across the County. The Report is a guide for County families, businesses and friends who are looking to make lasting change through their donations, project funding and endowment planning with the CCF.
The CCF is now pleased to publish the 2015 Vital Signs Progress Report on Vital Signs Actions. The Report tells you about what the Working Groups have accomplished and where we are heading. It provides new data and community feedback. And it describes the projects underway in all three areas, as well as opportunities for volunteers to get involved and ways to support project funding. It is indeed a tribute to the continuing dedication and work of all the organisations and individuals stepping up to move things forward in concrete and lasting ways.
A CALL TO ACTION
You can get involved! VOLUNTEER: Projects such as “Fresh for All”, Community Gardens, volunteer driving and learning programs all depend on community volunteers. EXPLORE: Find out about new and updated sources of information on services available now, such as transportation. PROVIDE FUNDING: The CCF offers many ways for you to make a financial contribution to keep these projects moving forward. The CCF will remain closely involved with Vital Signs actions. We will continue to work with the community on these and other collaborative projects and encourage philanthropic support for actions aimed at making a real difference both now and in the future of our community. Our PEC Fund will continue to support community organisation s which make substantial contributions to our community's well-being.
