April 12th through April 18th is National Volunteer Week. We wanted to take this week to thank all of our volunteers (that’s YOU!) for all you do to make Austin greater.
Our volunteer arm, Hands On Central Texas, had a very busy 2014. Check out what we were able to accomplish last year, thanks to volunteers like you:
Volunteers gave their time with us
Hours of volunteer work completed
Number of nonprofits served through Hands On Central Texas
Hours of completed training courses for volunteers
That’s a lot of people giving their time back to their community! Was there a specific volunteer project you participated in last year that you loved? Let us know by tweeting us @uwatx or sharing it on our Facebook page!
We’ve already started off 2015 on a great note with our MLK Day of Service in January, and multiple volunteer projects from campaigns running this spring, such as CLS Partners’ work in St. John’s. This Friday, April 17 more than 600 volunteers have signed up to assist on 32 volunteer projects around the city for our annual Spring Day of Caring (SDOC). There are very limited spots remaining for SDOC, so sign up now if you want to join us!
Help us make 2015 our biggest year of giving back yet!
Every day in Austin, we’re working to ensure each child has access to high-quality education, every family has the tools they need to be financially stable, and health and human services are readily available for all.
