    Volunteer Inquiries

    Volunteers are the Heart of Step Up!

    It has been said the character and strength of a community may be measured by its volunteers.  So it is right that today, April 2oth, Step Up salutes its volunteers and supporters as part of Volunteer Recognition Day, an annual celebration honoring individuals who dedicate themselves to taking action on a variety of issues in their communities.

    We are pleased to announce the 2016 Step Up Volunteer couple of the Year are John & Jackie Treuting of Loaves and Fishes Ministries (shown above).  The Treuting’s gather and donate items for Welcome Home! kits providing the necessities of daily living: bedding, lamps, laundry & cleaning supplies, kitchen supplies, cutlery, cookware, storage bins, and small appliances.

    “Volunteers, such as the Treuting’s, who provide Welcome Home! kits help individuals formerly experiencing homelessness to comfortably settle into housing and a rich array of supportive services. Additionally, and very importantly, all the support groups offered at Step Up are run by volunteers who help open doors of opportunity and pave avenues of success. ” said Carolyn Baker, VP of Community Development. “Step Up volunteers are the local heroes providing a vital service in the community and I want to publicly thank each of them for their dedication and passion, and to recognize their immense contribution!”

    “As we celebrate Volunteer Recognition Day, we embrace our shared responsibility to one another and recommit to the task of healing and sustaining ALL members of the community.”, said Baker. “I am extremely grateful for the efforts of our dedicated local volunteers, and welcome other members of the community joining us. One particular need we still have is for a volunteer Volunteer Coordinator!” added Baker.

    Celebrate Volunteer Recognition Day and share your personal volunteer story on Twitter and Instagram using #NVW2016.
