April is Volunteer Appreciation Month

volunteerheartApril may be Volunteer Appreciation Month, but we at CFS are thankful each and every day for our volunteers.

Did you know, we have a total of 135 volunteers, of whom 89 are mentors (Bigs), working with at-risk children in Greater New Bedford.   Our Board, Friends of CFS, BB/BS Advisory, event committees and those who run our Hetty’s Thrift Shoppe on a daily basis, are all volunteers!

We are thankful for those offering their time and energy to help us fulfill our mission, “…to heal and strengthen the lives of children and families. Their passion for the agency and the work we do to help those struggling with mental health concerns is what makes them so special. They understand that anyone can suffer from a personal tragedy and know that there are people in the community who have fallen on tough times.

If you are a volunteer-Thank you!

If you know of a volunteer- Thank that person.
