You Wouldn’t “BeLeaf” the Great Volunteers We Have Here at Fillmore Kids!

on October 25, 2012

Fillmore Kids wouldn’t exist without volunteers.  It’s that simple.  As hard as I might try, there just isn’t any way I could single-handedly care for twenty-five-ish  children ranging from ages 0 to 12 every Sunday morning.  I rely on volunteer staff every week and I want to make sure that they know how much I appreciate them!  They dedicate themselves to taking care of infants and toddlers, leading small groups during J.A.M. Time, helping out during children’s church, and so much more.  Really…

 

A little cheesy?  Sure, but I saw this idea for volunteer appreciation on Pinterest and couldn’t resist making a Fillmore version.  Here is a view of the whole project:

 

I took the names of every single volunteer – from once-a-quarter nursery volunteers to weekly J.A.M. Time leaders – and wrote them on construction paper leaves.  From there, I just attached them to the door frame leading up to the children’s wing.  Simple, but I think it’s a fun way to recognize all that volunteers contribute.

What are some ways that you choose to show your volunteers your appreciation?
