Happy Thanksgiving from Verified Volunteers

Thanksgiving is the time of year when we come together to express gratitude for the wonderful things in our lives. From achievements to favorite memories, it’s time to celebrate the successes throughout the year. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Verified Volunteers asked our team to share what they are most thankful for this year. From the lighthearted to the more thoughtful, below are some of the responses we received:
