Happy Thanksgiving from Verified Volunteers

Posted Friday, November 16th, 2018 by Verified Volunteers Staff

Thanksgiving is a great time of year to celebrate what we are thankful for in our lives. At Verified Volunteers, we asked the team to reflect and share some of their thoughts of gratitude. Enjoy!

As we enter into the holiday season, I think about the kindness we see every day. I’m so impressed by the organizations we partner with, all of whom are doing their part to make the world a little safer and help all they interact with feel appreciated. I’m also grateful for my family, particularly my three girls, who volunteer their time and talents to support nonprofits they are passionate about.
