"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time... they have the heart."
We know these words to be so true. The volunteers that serve St Johns are some of our areas busiest folks. They are deeply involved in women's groups, Bible studies, politics, employment, education, other volunteer opportunities, church committees, civic responsibilities, family support, child care, and hundreds of other activities. And yet, they are deeply committed to serving our homeless brothers and sisters at St. John's and the Micah Center.
On June 7th, we took the time to celebrate these special folks that make our ministry come alive. We celebrated the hands and hearts that serve and love our guests even when the timing isn't convenient for them.
Green Bay Community Church opened their doors for the event, the Radisson provided a delicious and bountiful meal, Schroeder's provided florals and several small items donated for door prizes, too.
Volunteer Coordinator, Leanne Baeten said "Our volunteers are such an important part of our St John's family. Without them we could not provide the love and support our guests need. They freely give of their precious time to lovingly serve. We are grateful for each of them."
