Volunteers are the Best! Next week, we are celebrating volunteers at Keep Liberty Beautiful, and we have a lot to celebrate! We are hosting our annual volunteer celebration next Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
Volunteers are an essential part of programs like Keep Liberty Beautiful. We are happy to give them the recognition that they deserve. Our volunteers and community partners are invited to join us for a drop-in celebration on May 26, 2021. It is a little time of fun and fellowship to thank our volunteers over the last crazy, dealing with COVID-19, year for their selfless work for our community.
Volunteers are unique creatures. The dictionary defines a volunteer as “a person, who donates his / her time or efforts for a cause or organization without being paid,” which is true. Still, there is so much more to volunteers than whether they are receiving money for what they do. They create change, hope, and positive differences for our community. Volunteers believe that their actions can make a difference.
Volunteers are also much more about doing things rather than talking about change. You also really don’t find too many complainers in groups of volunteers. This is very refreshing.
By the end of June, around three thousand volunteers will have pitched in to plant gardens, plant trees, and participate in events for recycling.
Our KLB volunteers also help our schools and our community learn about ways to make our environment healthier for all of us and join in the never-ending fight against litter. About two hundred schools, churches, organizations, youth programs, municipalities, and businesses have worked together at events around our county to make our little corner of the world here in Liberty a cleaner and brighter place to
live and visit.
The Keep Liberty Beautiful program is really all about volunteers. They are the heart of what we do, and I am so glad to be a part of it every day.
Anyone can be a volunteer. You may think you don’t have the time, but you would be wrong. Our volunteers are some of the busiest people in our community.
Time is not the factor that generates people to volunteer. To quote Elizabeth Andrew, another one of those people who come up with memorable things to say, “Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time. They have the heart.”
KLB volunteers, like all volunteers, ‘make’ the time to make a difference because they have the heart for it. If you volunteered this year, I hope that you will be able to drop by the appreciation. For more information or RSVP, contact us at (912) 8804888 or at klcb@libertycountyga. com. All volunteers are welcome at KLB, and every 2nd and 4th Friday is our volunteer opportunity at the office.
Our volunteer appreciation is a great event to learn more about our volunteer opportunities and the beautiful people that make things happen.
Thank you, Liberty County, for supporting Keep Liberty Beautiful!
