The Volunteers do “all the things”

Kelly (3)This is me. My job is to work with volunteers at RMHC. Actually my title is Community Outreach Coordinator, but that is really long. So let’s talk about what I do. I work with other people from the community (see how I tied that in there?) who want to help the families that stay at the Ronald McDonald house.
Want to know what THEY do? I would love to tell you. April is the month of  Volunteer Appreciation. We appreciate (love) our volunteers because they do ALL these things….#volunteerRMHC 

  • They rake leaves
  • They make brownies
  • They take registration at our events
  • They fix ovens when they break
  • They bring toys at Christmas from our giving trees for families
  • They shovel and shovel snow….. And then shovel again. Oh, and then again. (it snows a lot here)
  • They do laundry
  • They clean windows
  • They make cards
  • They make dinner. And lunch. And then dinner again.
  • They haul out the recycling
  • They mow the lawn
  • They make posters
  • They clean the bathrooms
  • They invite us to talk to their classrooms and then save pop tabs all year as a school project
  • They grow vegetables
  • They golf in our Golf Tournament
  • They water the flowers. They plant the flowers.

The title of this blog post gives reference to a 6 year old girl we know who sometimes has to do “all the things”. I love that. Volunteers really do all the things. And this volunteer-coordinator-outreach-community person appreciates it all.

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS. Of course we would love to have you anytime. Email Kelly@rmhcfargo.org to get started.
