14 Aug Volunteer Appreciation Picnic
On July 15th, we held our annual Volunteer Appreciation Picnic at Crossroads Park in Bellevue.
About 25 people came to enjoy the food, sunshine, and company of their fellow volunteers. We all had an extra special treat this year, because two of our Day Center volunteers and meal donors, Sue and Robin, offered to supply the food, and it was delicious! They pulled out all the stops, bringing several different dishes, including barbecue ribs, black bean burgers, a variety of different salads, and fresh watermelon for dessert.
Our Day Center and office volunteers, as well as our Companions, were awarded certificates to thank them for their commitment of service, and a few very special volunteers received “Excellence in Volunteering Awards.”
While this picnic is an annual event, we are so grateful to all of our volunteers all year round, and we truly could not do what we do without your help! From donating meals to serving meals, from cleaning and organizing the shelter to data entry at the office, from helping plan events to walking alongside a client as a Companion, your service is so vital to our mission.
Thank you to all who came out, and to all of you who make what we do possible!
