Between January and June of 2018, our volunteers were collectively spending over 700 hours a month working with us! Many volunteers join us for a couple of hours a month, or maybe a few days during a school break ... and we appreciate every minute they spend with us. There are some, though, whose commitment and dependability is quite amazing - many working over 100 hours during that six month period!
