Volunteer Week 2014
Volunteer week here at Charity Dynamics is an annual activity that we all look forward to. This year, we had four really fun options to choose from; United Way for Greater Austin, Johnson’s Backyard Garden, Austin Animal Center and Girlstart.
The United Way for Greater Austin
“Taking the time to write handwritten, personal letters to local students to go along with bags packed full of school supplies for their very first day of middle school was my favorite part of Volunteer Week. Yes, FIRST DAY of middle school – how scary can that be? The Charity Dynamics team survived middle school, of course, so encouraging others with advice to not hold back and immerse themselves in activities they are passionate about felt like a useful, important reminder for these kids.” – Nick Barbieri, Project Manager
The volunteers who went to The United Way for Greater Austin enjoyed packing backpacks with school supplies and writing inspirational notes to incoming middle school students. The United Way for Greater Austin helps so many and we were thrilled that they hosted one of our volunteer groups.
