Sharon, one of the many volunteers at Good Samaritans of Garland receives 23 one-gallon bags of greens from Loving Garland Green
This morning I harvested a few greens from the Garland Community Garden to take to the Good Samaritans of Garland. As I was driving home, it occurred to me that people at that very moment all over Garland were also giving their time for the benefit of others. Most volunteers, like Sharon, will remain unknown to the majority of the community, yet it is people like her who are the true heart of any community.
On April 20, 2016, you can celebrate National Volunteer Recognition Day by thanking volunteers for their work, by donating to a volunteer group, and by joining a volunteer group.
Volunteering a few hours of your time each month to help someone in your community is one of the best ways to show your love for your community. As we lift others up, we also lift up our entire community.
