Peace Corps Volunteers never stop serving. Here in the Asheville area they volunteer in projects throughout the community. They are active in organizations such as Manna Food Bank, Homeward Bound, Habitat for Humanity, the Asheville Symphony and local schools. Through their bi-annual fund raising events, the RPCVs of WNC have also funded projects abroad such as: a community library in Kenya, tsunami relief fund in the Solomon Islands, a nutrition project in South Africa, and a community health project in the Dominican Republic. .
This event is open to the general public. Anyone interested in helping others both at home and abroad should come to enjoy a great evening of music, dance and socializing for the benefit of Homeward Bound and a Peace Corps Partnership Project overseas.
