Dear CRC Volunteer,
May gray. You know what I’m talking about. When April has been glorious and you’ve maybe even paddled out a time or two without a wetsuit. And then May hits, and mornings are cold, soggy, and cloudy and everyone feels a bit melancholy.
I admit there are days lately when the world seems a bit darker and a bit cold as well. But then, just like the sun peaks out from the clouds on a May afternoon, I am reminded of the good things. Businesses that promote philanthropy in their staff. Teens who give up their time on a Saturday to sort food donations for those in need. People who decide to do something about the hardships they see around them and who step up to serve an organization like CRC in whatever ways are needed.
This is why I love my job. We had the privilege this month to celebrate our volunteer team and highlight the impact YOU make and the brightness you bring. Thank you for valuing others and partnering with us to bring dignity and help to those who need it.
I hope you are encouraged by the work you see around you as I am!
