Love, Jane Rose

Jane Rose of RMHCLast week, nonprofits across town recognized National Volunteer Week, which was conceived by the Hands On Network and the Points of Light.

One of the warmest, most heartfelt thanks came from Jane Rose, volunteer services coordinator at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin.

“I created something of a ‘love letter’ to all volunteers, not just ours but those for other groups, too,” says Rose. Each month more than 350 volunteers prepare meals, clean rooms, support office staff and more. Regular volunteer groups include Little Helping Hands, GENAustin, National Charity League and others, along with individuals and families. There also hundreds of volunteers who pitch on for special events, too.

Here’s an excerpt from her blog post:

We can’t do what we do to help the families who need us without our wonderfully awesome, fantastic, talented, caring volunteers. I hope all of you reading this who volunteer for RMHC Austin know how much you are not just appreciated, but loved very much, for all that you do.  Was that short, sweet and mushy enough for you?

If you’ve ever volunteered at Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Capital Area Food Bank, a race, a blood drive, a park clean-up…. this blog post is for you. Check it out here.
