Volunteer State of Mind
Updated: Apr 21, 2019
April is National Volunteer Month-this month is dedicated to honoring volunteers in our communities as well as encouraging volunteerism. Have you ever wondered how your County Fair operates? Or who takes care of the concession stand at your favorite school ballgame? It takes countless hours donated by volunteers to pull off all of this magic. I would like to send out a big “Thank You” to all volunteers for sharing your talents and time with your community!
Volunteerism is very close to my heart and engrained in my DNA. Since adolescence, I have always felt a responsibility to create an environment I want to live in everyday. That is why I chose to volunteer with the local non-profit, Vision 2020 Inc. Whether they are rescuing a historic structure to turn it into a Heritage Museum or creating a new entity to fill a need—they are taking care of #HOME and creating a better quality of life.
Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? There are countless ways you can contribute to your community. Don’t have much time-no problem there are tons of smaller tasks that you can help with. Are you a people person-then maybe you would enjoy working an event? Do you like creating documents or fliers-you may prefer to work independently? Maybe you are a company that can sponsor or host an event? Whatever your gift/service I encourage you to share it with a local non-profit. It takes all types of volunteers to run a village.
In honor of National Volunteer Month, Vision 2020 Inc is offering a reduced annual membership of $20 during the month of April. For more information about the organization, please, visit their Facebook or website: vision2020inc.com.
Now is the time to fulfill your calling and help build our communities--Volunteer today!
