Recognizing Those Volunteers Who Make a Difference!

W      e extend our deep appreciation and thanks to the following 1,123+ caring and kindhearted volunteers who gave of their time and
       talent from July 2011 to the present. Through their service, thousands of people received compassionate support through some
of the most challenging times of their lives. From helping homebound “neighbors” with services such as grocery shopping and rides to
medical appointments; to serving on our board of directors or a committee; providing office support; serving as a faith community nurse;
creating successful fundraisers; or another form of service – you all are our heroes.
