Women’s Service Day Volunteers Worked Wonders

Thanks to 140 volunteers working on Women’s Service Day this year, a LOT was accomplished around the Holland community. Like raising over $1,800 for Nuestra Casa neighborhood center, which is nearing its total fundraising goal of $75,000 for renovation. And, raising the roof on Nuestra Casa—plus adding wall frames—all in one day!

Here’s a list of the many tasks our volunteers accomplished around Holland:

We’ve already received feedback from our agencies, who look forward to this event each year, as well as from volunteers. Here are expressions of gratitude from recipients and participants:

“Thankful for all the Women’s Service Day volunteers who are working here and throughout the community. It’s great to see women empowering others through the spirit of giving!” – Center for Women in Transition

“Nestlings had a great group of ladies in today for Women’s Service Day that wrapped lots of diapers. Thank you to Hilda, Becky, Kelly, Kara, Pria and Rose for all your service today.” – Nestlings Diaper Bank

“Love having Women’s Service Day at Habitat! They are working hard and doing a great job at our site.” – Lakeshore Habitat for Humanity

“We had a great day at Nuestra Casa. The women worked wonders.” – Dave DeBlock, Nuestra Casa construction team site lead.

“[I made] new connections with our JCI friends. Loved working at Hospice of Holland. The people there were so thankful for our help as we were able to do some of the more challenging work that the normal older volunteers could not get done.” 🙂 – a WSD participant
