Celebrating Volunteer Service

It’s National Volunteer Week! One of the things I love about the people in Greenwood County is that they serve each other and our communities with BIG hearts! That’s one of the things in small towns and communities that makes them special. The service from volunteers and volunteer organizations was evident even before last summer’s tornado hit Eureka and probably the one before it; somehow emergency situations unite and strengthen communities.

Of course, the opportunities to volunteer are always plentiful and necessary in every community; one does not need to look hard or far for an opportunity to volunteer time, talent or money to a good cause. Volunteering offers chances for communities and organizations to come together, empowers individuals to fuel a passion and make change. Simply put, volunteers usually do so because they have it in their heart to “do good” or “make a difference”. Who are some of the volunteers in our community we can celebrate as champions without naming names?
