In April, we celebrated Volunteer Appreciation Month. Congratulations to Michelle Ramsey, Shelter House Volunteer of the Year! She has worked at many of our fundraising events, staffed information booths around the community, worked at the shelter on the hotline and is a great advocate for Shelter House. Congratulations, Michelle!
