New York, NY, United States, 2009/01/18 - The Presidential Inaugural Committee taps Evoca to enable volunteers from across the United States to share their National Day of Service projects.
Seeking to inspire thousands of Americans to respond to the incoming Obama administration’s challenge to engage in community service projects on January 19th and beyond, Obama inauguration organizers turned to Evoca, the leading Phone-to-Web services provider, to deliver its “Call to Service” toll free hotline 1-877-888-6228 and stream volunteers’ diverse stories on its USA Service website.
Responding to Barack Obama’s appeal to honor Martin Luther King Jr. while volunteering in their communities, the hotline features voices of project participants ranging from former Obama campaigners canvassing for clothing for the needy in Orange Park, Florida, to an AmeriCorps team refurbishing a family emergency center in Rochester, New York, to neighbors bringing food, entertainment, and care to the residents of the Eastern Nebraska Veterans Home. Anyone can call to record their stories before and after January 19th to continue to respond to Obama’s “Call to Service” by Americans for Americans in need.
Evoca’s Phone-to-Web services were utilized during the Obama presidential campaign to encourage voters to share their views about a wide range of domestic and international issues and help the campaign team respond effectively to voters’ concerns and ideas. Evoca continues to “empower the voices” of citizens across the United States and around the globe, turning any mobile phone or landline into a digital recording device.
