We are part of an international network of non-profit agencies dedicated to educating and empowering individuals and thereby, communities in Europe and the Americas.
But today is not about Dianova, or UlsterCorps, or RSVP – it is about all of YOU. I am so proud to live in a community that flourishes in large part due to the tireless efforts of our volunteers. YOU are true community builders, and it is an honor to be here amongst you.
Your generosity in giving so much time and service touches countless lives here in Ulster County.
This gift, that you all give so freely, is not only appreciated by people that you support, but those who marvel at your dedication and selflessness, and are inspired to do the same.
I am thrilled that we have the opportunity, to sponsor this event, along with the amazing people at UlsterCorps and RSVP at SUNY Ulster. The impact of volunteer efforts on our community is in perfect alignment with what so many organizations strive to do in the US and beyond.
I daresay, that the impact of what you do transcends county lines if not state lines and country borders ~ and I want to thank each of you for being catalysts for community change.
