04 Apr Volunteers Are Our Heart
Dear Friends of WTLC,
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month.
This is a very special time to say, “thank you” to our volunteers. There are not enough words to describe how amazed and grateful I am for the dedication, compassion, and generosity of all of our supporters who have given their time, talent, and contribution to WTLC.
Our work would not be possible without the donations of items such as canned foods, hygiene products, and gift cards from numerous successful donation drives most recently hosted by Pacific Western Bank, CMRE Financial Services, and Boy Scouts Troop 207.
Without the support from our committed individual volunteers, who have all completed the state mandated 40-Hour Domestic Violence Training, we would not have been able to provide critical services to 3,057 participants and 2,915 calls to our 24/7 Helpline number last year.
We also want to recognize the amazing work and commitment of those volunteers that help with our special events, helping us to raise over $116,000 this past year.
On behalf of our Board, staff, and participants, I would like to say thank you for your unwavering support and generosity. We continue to work very hard every day to support survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking. We truly appreciate all those who have joined us in this work.
