Sojourner House celebrates volunteers at annual recognition dinner

Volunteers are part of the backbone of Sojourner House and Sojourner House MOMS. As a matter of fact, hundreds of volunteers support Sojourner House and MOMS throughout the year, every year. That's why Sojourner House makes a point of celebrating and recognizing its volunteers each spring.
Liz Wasel, Childcare Development and Volunteer Coordinator, coordinated this year's dinner, which took place the evening of April 12 at Sojourner House.
"We at Sojourner House could not do what we do without our volunteers," said Wasel. "There is never a job that's too little, and our volunteers do the job because they care about us.
"The annual volunteer event is what we like to do to show how much Sojourner House appreciates the volunteers, Wasel continued. "I personally have had the privilege and, yes, it is a privilege to work with many of the volunteers. They are the best!"
