(Editorâ€™s Note: With April 10-16 being National Volunteer Week, this is part two of a four-part series about the importance of volunteers in certain organizations throughout the community.)
There are two local non-profit organizations that depend on the help of volunteers in order to continue having an impact in the community.
United Way and HutchCares find having volunteers a very critical part of their non-profit organizations.
Kim Cook, the director for HutchCares, said that the organization â€śwould have nothing if it werenâ€™t for the volunteers.â€ť
Earlier this year Alan Jones, of Fuzzyâ€™s Radiator Service, approached the Borger Economic Development Board to see what kind of assistance the EDC could provide as the company looked into expanding their heat exchanger process at their facilities located on the south side of Borger near Highway 207.
After looking at the project and taking time for discussion on the project, on Tuesday the EDC Board approved an incentive agreement with Fuzzyâ€™s Radiator that will grant the company an investment of $700,000 over a five year period during their regularly scheduled April meeting.
