National Volunteer Week April 27 to May 3

To the Clinton Today: It is National Volunteer Week time to recognize volunteers and celebrate the spirit of volunteerism. We all know a volunteer. Many of us are ourselves volunteers. We know first-hand the selfless nature of people who give with no expectation of being paid for their time. Volunteers do work for free, but volunteers will tell you they are well-paid. They contend that the reward for their work is not money, but is, instead the satisfaction of helping others, active involvement in the community and friendships that form through the volunteer network. The theme of National Volunteer Week is Volunteer to Change the World, and that is just what Red Cross volunteers do. Without volunteers, the American Red Cross could not complete its mission to provide relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. At the North Country chapter , more than 200 volunteers help people affected by domestic and international disasters, teach lifesaving skills, support Lifeline subscribers, serve members of the military and their families. The North Country chapter welcomes volunteers of all ages and skills. Please contact the Chapter to explore volunteer opportunities. Contact Jeanie Roberts or Deanna LaPier at 561-7280. Jeanie D. Roberts, Executive Director, North Country chapter of American Red Cross
