Volunteers Are Our Heart and Soul #NationalVolunteerWeek

By Operation Homefront

April 7, 2014

It’s National Volunteer Week. What can we say about volunteers…

They are the heart and soul of not just our organization, but of every organization that strives to make a difference and have an impact in their corners of the universe.

As the quotes goes… “Volunteers are love in motion”. And we’d like to share some of that love (and some favorite quotes) with you as we say “Thank You” to the thousands of volunteers across the country that help Operation Homefront make a difference in the lives of our military families and wounded, ill or injured veterans.

“A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.”- Washington Irving
