A Word of Thanks to Those Who Volunteer

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters” (Colossians 3:23 NIV).

In no endeavor is this scripture more true than in volunteer service. When there is no personal gain to be had for work, it is truly an effort unto the Lord that we give. On behalf of HOPE South Florida and many other organizations who depend on volunteers, we would like to deeply and sincerely thank the hundreds of volunteers who make a such an impact in our community. We could not serve the many single mothers in crisis and homeless individuals without your help.

Thank you.


Developing a Lifestyle of Service

All over the country, organizations will show appreciation during volunteer week April 12 – 18 for the many volunteers who selflessly give their time to make a difference in the lives of others. Established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon, Volunteer Week is now sponsored by the Points of Light Institute, a foundation created in response to President George H.W. Bush’s inaugural speech in 1989, urging volunteers and community activists to become “a thousand points of light.”
