Volunteers make mission possible at La Posada
Tuesday, June 9, 2015

As La Posada approaches the end of the fiscal year, we would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to the many volunteers who have contributed to this year’s success at La Posada.

From helping with fundraising events, delivering goods, teaching clients new skills, and many other tasks, hundreds of you have filled our hearts with a renewed sense of mission and belief in our amazing community.

In the previous fiscal year, La Posada tallied more than 7,000 volunteer hours, from nearly 200 dedicated individuals. We believe the close of this current fiscal year will bring similar, if not greater, numbers.

Many of you have come from our community, nearby towns, schools and universities. Some of you have traveled through many states just so you can offer your talents and skills to our staff and clients. All of you deserve to be praised for being the backbone of our mission.

Thank you for helping us to continue “welcoming the stranger.â€
