Today, civic participation occurs at many levels. We make impactful decisions about our community every time we make a purchase, vote, post on social media and, of course, volunteer. We think any awareness we can bring to the many resources that might spur individual action for good, falls right in line with what we’re up to at HandsOn.

As we come into the holiday season, we want to express our gratitude to all of you. From the donors who continue to support us, to the nonprofit partners that we get to work with, to the volunteers who graciously give their time, to you reading this newsletter right now, thank you.

A special shout out to two volunteers who have gone above and beyond, Karen Harris and Mark Montalbano. This year Karen completed her 1,000 volunteer hour with us! From service days to dinner services we cannot thank you enough for the time you have given to our community. Thank you to Mark, since joining us in February, he has served over 400 hours! You are a true inspiration for new volunteers. Thank you both!
Thanksgiving is here! Celebrating this holiday and showing gratitude can come in many different forms. Whether we are seeing loved ones in person, video chatting with family members in other states, or writing cards this is a wonderful opportunity to connect.
