Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer for two great organizations: HRC and the March of Dimes. Some people may associate volunteering with long hours and boring tasks, but that is far from the truth. Volunteers are the backbone of these two organizations. They work very hard, yet still have fun in the process.
Columbus Pride is truly a group effort.

The power of volunteers:
In three hours, 30 volunteers sorted, stuffed, stamped, sealed, and mailed more than 3,000 personal invitations to the HRC dinner. Within weeks, volunteers also gathered over $35k worth of silent auction donations
Do you prefer to be outside?
Four people organized 35 volunteers who gave up their Sunday and paid to play kickball. All funds raised went to the MOD.

So the next time I ask “volunteer much?” I hope you answer “Yes!”
