Check out our recent events with the CAPA family!

Child IDs

This was an event for Apex First Baptist’s Community Fun Day – Back To School Bash. Backpacks and school supplies were distributed, there was free food and activities for the kids provided by various church members and community groups.  CAPA was out there to do Child IDs and the Apex Police Department was on-hand to better get to know its neighbors. A good time was had by all!

Apex Mosque

Some of the advantages of volunteering with CAPA. Thank you to everyone who came out early in the morning to assist with overflow parking at the Apex Mosque. Especially these two fun-loving knuckleheads 🤪

Adopt-A-Highway

Community and Police working together! Thank you Apex Police Department for helping CAPA clean our section of Kelly Road this past Saturday. I hope this won’t be the most fun they have all week 🙂

No Sew Blankets

On 6/22/19, CAPA finished another HAPPY morning making no sew blankets for SAFEchild. SAFEchild – which stands for Stop Abuse For Every child – supports families having a wide range of needs. Expertly trained professionals and volunteers build strong families in which parents nurture thriving children.  SAFEchild annually serves nearly 9,000 children and families through parenting programs and the SAFEchild Advocacy Center and empowers 13,000 Wake County first graders through the school-based Funny Tummy Feelings program. The members of Olive Chapel Elementary Kids Corps helped us with this great event!  It is a Club for 4th & 5th Graders who are interested in serving others through servant leadership.  Thanks to everyone who attend, we will be delivering the blankets soon!

Volunteer of the Year

A ‘Volunteer’ is defined as a person who freely offers to take part in a task.
🙂 A ‘Dedicated Volunteer’ is a partner, working together with the community, to improve the lives ofothers.
😄 A “Volunteer of the Year” is a distinguished title given to that ONE person whose service transcends expectations and whose ability to ‘give’ exceeds boundaries.

👋 This year’s Volunteer of the Year was always the first to raise her hand, or the first to jump in when assistance was needed. Her peers have described her as a “Pillar” of the CAPA organization.

✍️ As the current Secretary of the Board, a member of the Hospitality Committee and as Coordinator of CAPA’s Blanket Buddies program, Jenny has contributed more than 54 volunteer hours in 2018 and 2019. She also serves as an invaluable volunteer for her church and for CERT. 👨‍🚒👩‍✈️

🎉This year’s Volunteer of the Year is Jennifer Ahler.
