"Even though we don’t know when things will ultimately subside, I know that we will get through this. How do I know that? Because there are good people like you, our volunteers, who continue to serve our communities and/or are still standing ready to serve. One thing this crisis has done is to exacerbate needs and show us how important it is to continue to show up for our neighbors by serving in our communities.”
- Former AmeriCorps Seniors Director Debbie Cox-Roush
