Every volunteer in America has been deeply touched and changed forever by recent events in our country. With a strong bond of patriotism, we have all united as one nation to show our respect, love and support for our precious land and its values. In honor of National Volunteer Week (April 21-27) we proudly recognize the volunteers of RTA Hospice and Palliative Care.
National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon as a way to honor the service of these generous people. It has been celebrated every year since, and provides an opportunity for us to express appreciation to our volunteers who make such a big difference in our organization.
Erma Bombeck once said, "Volunteers are the only beings ... who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience and just plain loving one another."
Our volunteers have proven their greatness by the hours they have devoted to helping our organization fulfill its mission, and by the caring way they have touched the lives of others.
We, at RTA Hospice, would also like to recognize the countless volunteers who have given of their time in aiding our country during recent events. The spirit of volunteerism is stronger than ever before in our country and in our community.
As Americans, we are all proud to show the whole world how much we are dedicated to upholding the principles of freedom and justice for all.
