We're Grateful for our Volunteers
We're Grateful for our Volunteers

We don't mean to brag, but our volunteers are pretty impressive! Here's what they accomplished last year:

• number of volunteers = 1,759
• households impacted = 2,100
• value of service = $785,000
• value of tax refunds received = $1,756,000 (through volunteer tax preparation at Sparkpoint Center)

What do they do? Here are just a few ways they give their time:
• read with children in schools
• make home visits to new parents
• act as mentors for struggling students
• serve on our board
• spread the word about our organization
• distribute donated goods
• package and deliver donations
• provide service such as cleaning

That's why we honored our volunteers at our Volunteer Recognition event last week. We can't say this enough – we couldn't do it without you!
