Today is the first day that really looks promising for some rain. I actually used my windshield wipers today on my way to the office. Given that we have been in such a long drought I thought how about how precious each drop of water that we get is so valuable, but then water is a staple of life. We can’t survive without it.
It’s the same with TAP’s many dedicated volunteers. From April 4, 2010 though today, 354 volunteers have donated 2,216 hours of volunteer service to TAP. Each hour of service makes TAP’s mission more precious, stretches our resources farther, refreshes us and inspires us to do more.
To show our appreciation, TAP will hold a Volunteer Appreciation Happy Hour at the TAP offices on April 13 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Come and let us tell you in person how much we appreciate you along with some fun, food, and door prizes, and more.
April is National Volunteer Month dedicated to inspiring volunteerism and appreciating service. Locally, you can visit Hands on Central Texas for their Spring Days of Caring April 13-16. To sign up to volunteer with TAP, click here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact Kelly Schiller, Community Relations Assistant VISTA, at email@example.com. We’d love to sign you up!
Keep us posted on what you are doing as a volunteer in the community. We’d love to hear from you. I’ll get the ball rolling with a question: What was your most unusual volunteer task with a nonprofit organization in Austin?
