2015 Summer Enrichment Programs - THANK YOU!

The 2015 Summer Enrichment Program was a HUGE success, and it only due to the commitment of volunteers this summer! A team of 148 volunteers served 1287.75 hours over the course of this year's 6-week programs! Throughout the summer, 224 children were served and 8,542 meals were served. The numbers and pictures only briefly illustrate the impact that the volunteers' work left on the students. It was only through the team's support and willingness to serve that so many children had a fun, safe environment to learn and fill their bellies. We thank you for your dedication! 


The Volunteer Center, in partnership with Bossy Mama Coffee, will recognize one outstanding volunteer every month. The volunteer will be recognized during an award presentation at Bossy Mama Coffee and receive a free drink. During the award presentation, 10% of sales will be donated to a local non-profit agency of the volunteer's choice. Nominations are due by the 3rd Monday of each month and can come from fellow volunteers, community members, or agencies. Nomination forms can be found at the bottom of the page.
