On International Volunteer Day, December 5, and every day, we appreciate volunteers and the important role they play!
Volunteers are needed throughout S:US’ programs to help meet the diverse needs of the thousands of New Yorkers we support every year. People volunteer with S:US to wrap presents for our Holiday Gift Project, teach participants how to apply for a job, lead yoga classes, work in the gardens with Urban Farms, and more. All of these things are essential to helping individuals served by S:US lead full and enriched lives.
Over the summer, volunteers from Beulah Church worked with Urban Farms to improve the garden at one of our residences. They painted garden beds bright colors, refinished the gazebo, pruned plants, and then served a hot meal for the residents. These volunteers made the backyard look so beautiful and colorful! And the residents appreciated the delicious and filling meal that the volunteers provided. Beulah Church has volunteered with us previously and we appreciate their support!
