“Volunteers are ordinary people with extraordinary hearts.”

November 13, 2018

[FERNDALE] – A get together of celebration and gratitude took place last week to show appreciation for the Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps, a group of inspired, community-minded ambassadors who offer vital assistance to the program and community projects. The event brought the 2018 Corps together for a debriefing and sharing of ideas and stories that was celebratory but also will guide the program going forward.

“Volunteers are the heart and soul of the program and bring a vital community spirit to local efforts,” said Anne-Louise Scandariato, Volunteer Program Manager.  “The Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps are truly making a difference by giving their time for a range of activities; from gardening, planning and general labor to bookkeeping, fundraising and photography.

Sullivan Renaissance is rooted in transformation through beautification, community development and grassroots engagement.  Projects are planned each year involving volunteer groups, communities, nonprofit organizations, and individuals. There are many opportunities for individuals to get involved, meet neighbors and learn more about the county’s beautiful public places.  Whether you have 20 minutes a day or an hour a week, projects around the county can benefit from your skills and involvement.
