Eye on New Mexico December 19, 2010
On Sunday, December 19, 2010, Commission Executive Director Greg Webb, along with several AmeriCorps and VISTA volunteers will appear on KOB-TV Channel 4’s “Eye on New Mexico.”
TV shows will spotlight NM volunteers
ALBUQUERQUE (October 14, 2009) — The New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism will take center-stage this month on television in the run-up to Make a Difference Day. The Commission, chaired by Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish, administers the AmeriCorps program and other volunteer service efforts in the state.
“Even in these challenging economic times, nearly one-third of New Mexicans volunteer and work with their neighbors to make New Mexico a better place. New Mexicans statewide and from every age group are giving back to their communities. I appreciate the contributions of these volunteers and the Commission for Community Volunteerism for helping New Mexicans learn how they can contribute their time to making their communities a better place.”
On Sunday, Oct. 18, Commission Executive Director Greg Webb, along with several AmeriCorps and VISTA volunteers will appear on KOB-TV Channel 4’s “Eye on New Mexico.” The show airs at 8:00 am Sunday.
At the end of the week, on Oct. 23, public broadcasting stations around the state will air a 60-minute special featuring Denish, Commissioner Mike Nuanes and others talk about the work of the Commission in every corner of New Mexico. The show airs from 7:00-8:00 pm.
Webb, the Commission’s Executive Director, said he was particularly happy that the state’s AmeriCorps inauguration ceremony will coincide with the increased visibility. The launch event for new members takes place in Las Cruces on Oct. 22 and 23.
“These folks are heroes,” Webb said. “We have recent research showing that volunteer hours in New Mexico equate to more than $1 billion annually in labor hours, and these are contributions that go to every corner of our state, rural as well as urban, to make lives better. Volunteers deserve every bit of applause we can give them.”
New Mexico has more than 500 AmeriCorps volunteers and was the first state in the country to have a Blueprint for Community Engagement in 2006 — a coordinated plan to increase volunteerism — a model that has been influential nationally in the service sector.
“I’m tremendously proud of the Commission’s work,” Denish said. “We’re demonstrating how states can build organizations to tap into this amazing natural resource of generosity and leverage the dollars we receive into real impact.”
Capping off events will be Make a Difference Day on Oct. 24, with projects throughout the state. Projects can be found at www.serve.gov.
