Thank you to all of our Chalice volunteers! You help make Chalice a wonderful place to visit, to become a part of, and a place that we want to keep returning to. Your ever-present volunteer spirit and vision ensures our groups, task forces, and committees will be staffed and effective. Special activities depend on volunteer time and commitment; attendees appreciate a well-planned activity/event to attend. Chalice is a place where one’s talents can shine! To honor and highlight our volunteers, I have created a word poem that hopefully captures many attributes of Chalice volunteers:
Volunteerism helps the community at large, and I personally have spent many years volunteering for various non-profits and schools, in addition to Chalice. I find that I am able to learn new skills every day and apply them to all aspects of my life. “I Can Do It!” was a phrase heard during a multigenerational story before Thanksgiving. Engage your mind and heart and volunteer to help our community partners. Service work for non-profit partners such as Interfaith Community Services, the San Diego Food Bank, and Habitat for Humanity helps each organization fulfill its mission, and fulfills our own compassionate hearts. Happy Holidays to all and thank you for all you do.
