National Volunteer Week - April 23-29, 2017




Celebrating the Impact of Volunteers

During National Volunteer Week, I wanted to take some time to acknowledge the work of our tremendous volunteers that have been the heart and soul of HandsOn Suburban Chicago since its inception in 1969. The amazing thing about volunteers is that they freely donate their time to strengthen our communities and, by extension, society as a whole. Whether they are delivering a meal to a senior in need, tutoring a child struggling academically in school, or perhaps stocking the shelves at the local food pantry, one thing is certain, volunteers make a significant difference and should be applauded for their service.
 
On behalf of HandsOn Suburban Chicago, thanks to all that volunteer or are considering volunteering in the future. During National Volunteer Week, please join me in thanking these unsung heroes that make the world a better place, and if you are one of those special people, don’t forget to encourage others to follow in your footsteps!
