(WOUB) - Nationally volunteers contribute close to $300 billion to the economy and in our region that number is in the millions.

Wendy Tuck is the executive director of Volunteer Action Center in Parkersburg.

She says volunteers are necessary in today's society.

In the Mid-Ohio Valley, the Volunteer Action Center maintains programs that support volunteerism with money they receive from annual fundraisers.

This year's fundraiser, "VAC to the Future" will be held on August 25th.

The event will have a western theme and feature hay rides and bluegrass music.
