We have 146,646 reasons to CELEBRATE!
Seniors in Service volunteers are amazing! In December we celebrated the 146,646 hours of service our volunteers have given to enrich the lives of children, seniors, veterans, and families in Tampa Bay this year. Every hour served represents a moment in time when a homebound senior received encouragement, food was distributed to a hungry family, a young student received the tutoring they needed to succeed or a veteran was connected to the resources they deserve. That’s the best reason to celebrate!
The theme for this year’s Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon was “Roots and Branches,” which is a perfect symbol of our volunteers. In the face of adversity, created by the pandemic, they proved just how deep their roots in service run, and their willingness to branch out to meet new challenges. During a time when everything they had done before became impossible and children and isolated seniors needed them most, their firmly planted roots made them immovable from service as they sought out new ways to serve others. Thank you to all of our volunteers, funders, and community partners who made this year a success! Celebrate with us as you check out the highlights.
Volunteers were THRILLED to have a surprise performance from our talented team member, Jeremy Rosado. The week before Jeremy competed as a finalist on “The Voice.”
