Volunteers are needed January 25th, 2017

The Homeless Point-in-Time Count is a one day, unduplicated count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families in Forsyth County. The count, coordinated by United Way of Forsyth County and the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Homeless Council, helps determine the extent of homelessness in our community. The data collected is used to plan services for the homeless throughout the year.
Volunteers are needed to help with the identification and counting of people who are sleeping outside on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 in Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas. Volunteers will be organized into groups of four or five and in two shifts, 9pm-12am and 1am-4am.
Organizers will be assembling bags of necessities to hand out to homeless men and women and are seeking donations of winter hats, scarves, hand warmers, individual tissue packets, sun screen, bottled water, canned foods with pop-tops or pre-packaged food, and plastic utensils.

Greg Olsen wins Walter Payton Man Of The Year Charity Challenge

Greg Olsen wins Walter Payton Man Of The Year Charity Challenge, $25K towards his foundation161207_olsen_inside_new.jpg

From becoming the first player at his position to ever post three-consecutive 1,000 receiving-yard seasons to being named an All-Pro for the second-straight time, Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has made quite an impact in 2016. His most important achievement, however, didn’t come until after the final snap of the campaign. At midnight on Monday, Olsen is the winner of Nationwide’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Charity Challenge. Thanks to fans, the 10-year veteran has earned $25,000 for his foundation, Receptions for Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation.

Olsen’s organization strives to help support hospitals, doctors and families better treat children and loved ones with congenital heart disease and cancer. As one of the charity’s two initiatives, “Receiving Hope” was created in 2009 following his mother’s battle against breast cancer. “The HEARTest Yard” fund would then be established in 2013 soon after his unborn son T.J. was diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.

Olsen, as one of the league’s nominees for the 2016 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, topped 31 other NFL players by receiving the most votes on social media with the hashtag #OlsenWMPOYChallenge from Dec. 12 to Jan. 8. Despite trailing San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith heading into the contest’s final weekend, he would receive a heap of support from a few friends in clinching him the comeback victory.
