“Volunteers are the backbone of what we do!”
Happy National Volunteer Recognition Month!
In the United States, volunteerism is instilled at a young age. In many parts of the country, it is the cornerstone of summer vacation or woven into after school programs. Most organizations in small towns, rural counties and the largest cities would not function without volunteers. In some families, the baton of volunteerism is handed down generation after generation.
At Habitat for Humanity Fond du Lac County, we know that our volunteers are some of the most passionate, caring, hardworking people. We could not do the work that we do without you and the skills and energy you share with us every day. Throughout the month of April, we will recognize our incredible volunteers that make a significant difference in moving our mission forward.
We will celebrate all of our volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 18-24, 2021. National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize the impact of volunteer service and the power of volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges, to build stronger communities and be a force that transforms the world. Each year, we shine a light on the people that inspire our service, recognizing and thanking volunteers who lend their time, talent and voice to make a difference in the Fond du Lac County community.
National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. Today, as people strive to lead lives that reflect their values, the expression of civic life has evolved. Whether online or at the office; whether with a vote, a voice, or a wallet – doing good comes in many forms, and we recognize and celebrate them all.
Volunteers come in all shapes and sizes. They pick a cause and make a difference in someone’s life. Sometimes, the difference is a drop in the bucket. Other times it creates a tidal wave of change.
Our lives have changed so much in the last year, and many of us are looking for the community and normalcy that volunteering provides.
