Volunteer of the Year Candidate
We’ve quantified our volunteer experiences from 2015. You are irreplaceable! We try to give volunteers a sense of how their work fits in with our total work. Sometimes, when you’re pulling weeds or at the wrong end of a super soaker, it’s difficult to see the big picture. Below is the Big Picture BY NUMBERS of our volunteer work in 2015.
