Making Connections In Durham, N.C.

This month we are collecting your stories about the good things Americans are doing to make their community a better place. Some of your contributions will become blog posts and the project will end with a story that weaves together submissions to make a story of Americans by Americans for Americans.

Every year since 2007, a raft of 25 or so volunteers has organized — a one-day, one-stop service event. People living on Durham's streets have access to dozens of agencies in one place. They can: apply for housing assistance, learn of social services, explore veterans' benefits and more.

The day also brings together folks from businesses, local government and churches. The event is not political, not divisive. It is love on display. Last year, we served more than 500 people; this year it will be on Oct. 11 at the Durham Bulls baseball park.

Jean Bolduc owns a communications business and listens to WUNC, Chapel Hill.
