On April 16, Bethany Village hosted a volunteer appreciation open house honoring 226 volunteers of which 60% are Bethany Village residents and the remaining 40% are members from the community at large.
The volunteers make a large impact on the organization contributing 33,553 hours of service with a contributing value of $645,224 in 2014. While we can count the volunteers and their hours, we cannot directly quantify the love and support that they provide to our residents, patients and clients. Needless to say, we could not reach our faithful caring goals with out their generous efforts.
At the open house, Bill Serr, Graceworks Lutheran Services President and CEO, expressed his gratitude for the volunteers’ efforts.
The dedicated volunteers perform a variety of tasks. This variety makes it possible for a volunteer to do something they enjoy and that has personal meaning to them. These tasks are listed below.
Bethany Village is a better place thanks to our dedicated volunteers. We extend the most sincere gratitude and appreciation to each volunteer. Thank you for your compassionate service given each and every day.
