And The Winners Are...
Approximately 20 organizations participated in our National Volunteer Week, #LowcountryVolunteer2019 Challenge.
Three organizations were randomly selected by Diane Shott and Bailey Schorr. Diane is the newest addition to our staff, replacing Anita Miles who retired in April. Bailey is leaving the Program Office this month to pursue an immersion program in Mexico, as he prepares to change the focus of his nonprofit/employment pursuits.
This year's winners received up to $3,000 for their volunteer recognition programs. They are:
- Lowcountry Legal Volunteers
- Volunteers in Medicine
