Gratefully acknowledging the many volunteers who dedicate their time, talents, and energy to make a difference in the community.
Welcome to Fall everyone! This is one of my favorite seasons of the year. As you are supporting your neighbors this month, I hope you’ll enjoy the beautiful colors on your commute.
We are very thankful for each and everyone of you. Thanks to community volunteers like you we’re able to help older adults live more independently in their home. We are excited to renew our newsletter but will be taking it electronically opposed to print mail. This will help save cost and connect with you more frequently. To help break it down a little bit, we’re going to publish two newsletters a month. The second Tuesday of the month we’ll be releasing the Neighborly News which will have agency specific news. On the fourth Tuesday of the month, we’ll be releasing Training Tuesdays which will highlight bits and pieces from the Volunteer Training to keep it fresh, highlight a video from our training academy, and tease out opportunities we learned throughout the annual survey.
We appreciate all the input that you and the care receivers gave us during our annual satisfaction survey. We will be teasing the results of the survey through our two newsletters. We are also planning to have monthly social engagements for volunteers that are in person. We’ll be engaging at different days of the week, different times, and locations so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. Quarterly we plan on having a social that brings together care receivers and volunteers for socialization, and to help care receivers build up a peer support network. These were comments that we heard from both volunteers and care receivers and we’re happy to create these opportunities for forming connections. If you are interested in being part of our social committee, please reach out to me!
