In reference to the Jan. 9 article, "Bush-Inspired Charity Shadowed by Questions," the Volunteer Center of Greater Orange County would like Orange County residents to be aware of the significant and positive impact the Points of Light Foundation has had in our community. The Points of Light Foundation in 1991 jump-started the Volunteer Center's campaign of mobilizing local residents into community service through a $50,000 grant. With 1990 information about Orange County volunteering suggesting that only 29% of Orange County residents volunteer, the foundation's grant was a needed impetus to moving the county forward to greater community involvement.
