On Friday, September 29, the Literacy & Learning Center hosted a Volunteer Luncheon to honor and celebrate the incredible volunteers who support the organization's mission to promote literacy and learning in the community.
The event was a warm and welcoming gathering where current, former, and future volunteers came together to connect, share stories, and enjoy a tasty and comforting southern-style meal prepared by Development Officer Jenni Edwards.
In her remarks, TL&LC Executive Director Bonnie Potts shared the organization's history that began in 1993, thanks to the inspiration and efforts of Susie DeVille and Derek Taylor. Program Manager Caroline Cox discussed the range of programs provided by the organization and expressed her sincere gratitude for the invaluable contributions of all TL&LC volunteers. She highlighted the many ways volunteers make a difference in the lives of others, from tutoring children and adults to organizing community events to providing administrative support.
"Our volunteers are the heart and soul of TL&LC," said Caroline. "We are so grateful for their dedication, passion, and commitment to our mission. We could not do what we do without them."
Before dinner, guests could engage in inspiring conversations and connect with like-minded individuals who share their commitment to creating positive change. The luncheon was also an opportunity to recognize some of TL&LC's most outstanding volunteers for their exceptional service.
The TL&LC Volunteer Luncheon was an excellent way to celebrate the power of community and the impact of volunteerism. Staff are so grateful for every volunteer who makes our work possible.
