Celebrating Volunteers During National Volunteer Week and Always: A note from Taylor

We have a variety of volunteers. Some belong to community or corporate groups, while others volunteer with their partner, children, or individually. However, all of our volunteers share in one important trait: you show up for others.

Katy, her husband, Thomas, and son, Jack came in with bandanas, put on fresh gloves, and disinfected the surfaces before leaving. Their college-age son, Will, participated virtually from his college town apartment.
