Over 30 volunteers gathered to hear how they helped staff and supporters serve over 1,000 Rensselaer County individuals during 2017. We shared guest stories, agency statistics and most of all, volunteer experiences.Seminary volunteer Donna shared her thought poem after a school year of volunteering in the Shelter and at Lansing Inn and we read comments by Sage students. All present - inspired by the Sage students sharing their before and after feelings about their time volunteering - were asked to describe how their volunteer experience made them feel.We ate great food cooked by another volunteer, Sue, and everyone left with a puzzle, a t-shirt and certificate. Special thanks to another young volunteer, Jocelyn, who chose the theme and planned the evening.
