It’s National Volunteer Week, that time of year in which we attempt to make sure that our wonderful volunteers feel as appreciated as they are.
We have a small volunteer program because we have a small staff, and volunteers require staff support. I know many more people throughout our community would volunteer if we could accommodate them, and I’m sure someday we’ll be able to do that.
As for now, we have the best, most steadfast, cheerful, patient, willing, generous group of volunteers that I’ve ever worked with. They brighten our days, take loads off our shoulders, and provide hundreds of hours of effort every year. So find a volunteer somewhere this week, and thank them!
If you’re ready to explore the wonderful world of volunteering yourself, a great place to start is with our local Volunteer Center.
