Volunteers, We Salute You!

Your efforts move lives forward!

Catholic Charities New Hampshire recognizes the scores of volunteers who generously give their energy, time and talent to support our programs that serve the poor and vulnerable and strengthen families. We celebrate and salute you during National Volunteer Month in April!

“You need to involve yourself to give back because it goes both ways. It’s very important to get involved to show the love, to show the care, and to teach your children the right path.” – Cacilia (Read Cecilia’s story on our blog.)

Your efforts are critical to our success as seen at the 12th annual Mardi Gras Gala on Feb. 4. A small army of volunteers – many coming from area colleges and universities and most volunteering for the first time – came out in force to make the gala a huge success.

Volunteers put in a collective 225 hours of labor that ranged from loading and unloading the supply truck; setting up the event; greeting more than 300 guests; handing out beads; and running auction tables, said Ryan Noronha, an AmeriCorps VISTA service member who serves as Catholic Charities’ volunteer services coordinator.

“We had a great group this year, which really helped make the event such a success,” Noronha said. He used Facebook and Volunteer NH to reach out to potential volunteers. Of the 43 who responded, 40 volunteered for the first time, he said.

“I’m a little bit surprised they don’t have more recurring volunteers because it’s such a great organization with so many different aspects to it.” – Ryan (Read Ryan’s story on our blog.)

Thank you to all of our volunteers – especially this month. Anyone interested in becoming part of this special team, join us! To learn more about volunteering at Catholic Charities, please see this month’s blog or visit cc-nh.org/volunteer.

Proceeds go to a great cause. Catholic Charities fights hunger, prevents child abuse, provides skilled counseling to those struggling with addiction, comforts the elderly, and teaches financial literacy skills.
