Summer is almost here!
We finally are getting some nice weather! With spring and summer here at Surrey, some of our dedicated volunteers will be vacationing. If you are in the local area for the summer and have any extra time that you’d like to offer during the summer months, please contact me.  We can work together to match you with a great opportunity to expand your skills or just meet some more fun people along the way.

I have my first meeting with the Volunteer Task Force Committee in early May.  The Task Force consists of Volunteers and a few Board Members, and there are three main topics we will address: Volunteer Recruitment, On Boarding/Training and Retention. It will be great to get thoughts and ideas from our Committee Members on what’s going well and also how we can improve here at Surrey.

Also, I will be sending all of you a VERY brief Survey in my next edition of Volunteer Viewpoint, so we can collect volunteer program feedback from everyone who wishes to share. So… be on the lookout for the on- line Volunteer Satisfaction Survey in my next edition.

Meantime, I hope to continue to meet many more of you in the coming months and thanks again for ALL that you do!


If you would like to contact me directly, my email is and my direct phone number is 484-321-6106.

Did You Know?
Did you know that you can include your commute time when you record your volunteer hours?

Volunteer hours are very important to Surrey when we apply for grant funding, state funding and private donations. They are a quantifiable measure of the level of engagement our volunteers have with our mission and community.
