Jamey Helgeson: Thank you volunteers for making programs successful

Published 6:00 pm Friday, April 8, 2022

LIFE Mower County is very thankful for our dedicated volunteers who give their time, energy, and talents to make our programs so successful. In 2021, LIFE Mower County had 36 volunteers who gave 637 hours of service. Without these dedicated individuals, we wouldn’t be able to offer the quality of programming LIFE Mower County is known for. We are grateful for all of their support and would like to say THANKS!!!

National Volunteer Week, April 17-23, 2022, is about inspiring, recognizing, and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It’s about demonstrating to the nation that by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals. National Volunteer Week is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change — discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to make a difference.
