“As in past years, this year’s Volunteer Day was a success because of the extraordinary dedication our employees and other members of The Network family have to their communities,” said Bruce Nardella, President and CEO of The MENTOR Network. “Volunteer Day has become a wonderful tradition that I look forward to each year because it allows us to come together as an organization to make a meaningful difference in the communities we share.”
This year’s Volunteer Day participants turned out ready to beautify, clean up and give their support to organizations that serve people in need. Projects included:
- Working at soup kitchens
- Sorting and organizing clothing donations at shelters for individuals experiencing homelessness
- Cleaning and beautifying homes for young men who have aged out of foster care
- Cleaning up at local parks and playgrounds
- Planting and weeding community gardens and farms that support food pantries
