Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies gives a warm thank you to all the young people who volunteered their time and efforts to beautify and spring clean the AWARE's safe shelter as a part of the 20th annual National Youth Service Day on April 25.
The staff, women and children in residence are uplifted by the fresh new atmosphere the volunteers created and the joyfulness they brought while sweeping, cleaning, washing and basically giving a good scrubbing to our facility.
AWARE depends on community volunteers, and these young people brought tremendous enthusiasm and focus to their work. AWARE also thanks Jared Shucha, member development coordinator; and AnnMarie Ellison, community volunteer coordinator of SAGA Service Corps program, for partnering on this special occasion with AWARE.
Congratulations on your 20th anniversary, and thank you for your great work.
Executive director, AWARE Inc.
