North Augusta -- We are one step closer to having another great resource to help you with your consumer problems.
Over the past few months, we've been telling you all about Call for Action, which is an international network of consumer hotlines that are staffed by volunteers.
Today, the volunteers had their latest training session.
That means this great new asset to consumers should be open for business before you know it.
The volunteers will soon be your latest resource for getting your consumer issues resolved. Something they are all excited about.
“I had an opportunity to be a part of it. I just want to give back to the community," says volunteer Clark Lucky.
On Wednesday, Clark and the other volunteers were learning some of the ways they'll be helping guide you through the process to find answers to your consumer questions.
"We learned how to deal with certain cases and the steps you take to make things right for the people," Clark said.
The organization Clark and the others will be working for is Call for Action. It's a non-profit that has been in the consumer issue game for decades.
Now it has a home in the Augusta-area. And after a few more training sessions, these volunteers will be ready to take your calls and help you find results.
The Call for Action office is based right here at News 12 and will be staffed with those volunteers several days a week.
This is an organization that has a proven track record; 90 percent of the calls it receives are resolved and every year, Call for Action saves consumers $30 million.
If you would like to volunteer for Call for Action, please call 1-800-647-1756.
