What a National Volunteer Week it's been at Central City Concern!

Volunteer Manager Eric Reynolds wrote about his thankfulness for volunteers and underscored the importance of their service, saying that "every smile, every handshake, and every moment here matters to someone."

Two of our volunteers—Anne and Janet—shared the very personal reasons they choose to give their time and presence to the residents of a CCC supportive housing site.

Dale, who serves as the connection between our residents and our volunteers, told us how volunteer service changes people: those who are on the receiving end of volunteerism, as well as those who are giving their time.

We even told the story of volunteer impact at Central City Concern through some incredible numbers!

To close the week, all we have left to do is say "thank you." We put together a little video to express our gratitude to each and every person who has chosen to give time, energy, and presence to those we serve. Happy Volunteer Week, and enjoy!
