Greetings volunteers,

Today is the beginning of National Volunteer Appreciation Week. Hooray for YOU! Every week should be volunteer appreciation week, because we couldn’t run our organization without YOU!

While we haven’t been able to see each of you to personally say “thank you!,” please know that what you do every day for Marin Humane + Hopalong, makes a huge difference!

There is something truly special about our volunteers. You’ve got big hearts, many talents, and care deeply about the animals and people we serve. We are so grateful for your ongoing dedication and compassion. No doubt about it — your service contributes to the greater good of the community!

You continue to inspire all of the staff (and each other) every day. Just like Dr. Seuss and Martin Luther King have said, we, too, feel our volunteers are truly remarkable:

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”– Dr. Seuss

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thank you from all of our hearts to yours!
Candace & Sam
