Ketchikan, Alaska - Americorp VISTA volunteer, Jessica Reveri, who has been in Ketchikan for the past eleven months, spoke before the Greater Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce at their luncheon Wednesday.

Reveri's term of volunteer service in Ketchikan will be ending in two weeks and she spoke about the work she has been doing while in Ketchikan. Speaking only briefly, Reveri said she worked with the Ketchikan Non-Profit Services Program whose broad intent is to develop a program of services available for residents.

To accomplish this goal, Reveri said the Ketchikan Non-Profit Services Program is working to create a community database that would contain all the information about the non-profit organizations in the community, thereby having one centralized location for locals seeking assistance. Reveri noted additional benefit would be the elimination of several groups fundraising for identical causes.

VISTA is an acronym for Volunteers In Service To America.
