Celebrating People in Action for National Volunteer Week!
National Volunteer Week begins this Sunday, April 18th and runs through April 24th. As Metro Volunteers stated, "This national celebration is about inspiring, recognizing, and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It's about demonstrating to the nation that by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals. National Volunteer Week is about taking action and enouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change - discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation."
Volunteers are the backbone of JFS and we could not provide services to more than 22,000 people each year without their invaluable support. Thank you to our hundreds of volunteers who give selflessly to our agency! Nancy Benyamin, director of volunteer services says, "I'm inspired every day by what the volunteers do and how they truly give from their hearts!"
We encourage you to get invovled and find a volunteer opportunity that fits your interests and schedule! For more information about volunteer opportunities, please contact Nancy Benyamin, director of volunteer services, at (303) 597.5000 x369.
