NC GreenPower

At the heart of every nonprofit is a collection of dedicated volunteers that carry the spirit and message of the organization into the community. NC GreenPower is no different, and we welcome all volunteers who wish to represent our organization. We operate using a very small staff, so we depend on volunteers to help us spread the word about NC GreenPower.
