What volunteers said

 “I enjoyed being outside, getting to meet new people, and bettering my community through this volunteering. The event was very organized and the people were great to work with!”

“Our well guided, small group put so much enthusiasm into the event today we were able to show that as a group goals can easily be met if the energy is there!”
