If you’ve ever come into our office you may have been greeted by a volunteer and if you’ve ever gone into the store you’ve most definitely interacted with a volunteer. Volunteers are a huge part of the Peace & Justice Center. We have volunteers who come through school programs, work training programs, community members who volunteer just because they want to and, of course, our amazing Board of Directors who are volunteers, and interns. Every year, 50+ people volunteer well over 3,000 hours to help the PJC work towards it’s mission. It’s because of them that we are able to do what we do.
As a thank you we will be gathering on Sunday from 5:00-7:30 PM at Oakledge Park for a celebration of our awesome volunteers. We like to find a couple times a year to get together outside of the workplace and connect a people and collaborators but more importantly, to show our volunteers how much we appreciate their hard work and dedication!
