During National Volunteer Week
We Celebrated the Volunteers of Beacon of Hope!
Volunteers are of a huge importance to nonprofit organizations. They are people who rally together for a cause they have at heart. Their passion and dedication are genuine. The time and energy they give is precious and leads to many great benefits for the community.
Our volunteers bring passion, credibility, expertise, experience as well as refreshed energy, perspectives, and new ideas to our beautiful organization. They give excellent service to the community and allow the entire team to reach more people in need!
Our most active volunteers: Megan, Phyllis, Jo Ellen, Dulce, Jennifer, Janet, Bidisha, Andre, Samantha and Hilina; are part of our family, and we would not be the same without them!
Now, I would like to go over their accomplishment with you!
If we do a cumulative of the hours solely for 2017, as of April 26, we are already at 200.5 hours! We went from 1 active volunteer to 9 – which is an 800% increase!
Please join me in recognizing our volunteers and their passion to our mission, community and everyone we serve. Wherever you are reading this from, let’s give them a round of applause.
