Recognizing Our Volunteers: Volunteer Appreciation Dinner 2017

Volunteer Appreciation Dinner 2017

Volunteer Appreciation Month & National Volunteer Week

Although April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month, we appreciate our volunteers year round, as they are a crucial bastion of support, ensuring St. Francis House can offer such a breadth and depth of programs and services for guests.

Collectively, St. Francis House relies on over 1,670 volunteers each year to provide more than 25,000 hours of service, which translates to almost $700,000 in pro-bono time and talent!

A thank you

St. Francis House hosted a private appreciation dinner for our volunteers during National Volunteer Week, where they had a great time socializing with fellow volunteer friends. Check out some of the photos below, and sign up to become a volunteer!

Additionally, throughout the month, our staff members shared personal testimonials for why they appreciate our volunteers: see photos.

Our volunteers give so much

They work in the kitchen helping prep and serve 600 meals a day, help sort clothing donations or work one on one with a guest to determine what fresh threads they are seeking, or assist in many other ways in our Resource Center and Sullivan Family Moving Ahead Program.

Because of our volunteers, St. Francis House can ensure the quality of our services for Boston’s poor and homeless – thank you.
