It was a beautiful day in everyone’s neighborhood during the 13th Annual HOTC Day held on October 22. 1400 volunteers offered up their morning to 60+ different project sites across Thomas County. Although the participation of both non-profits and volunteers was impressive, this day is about more than just numbers. It is bigger than just one person, one non-profit, one cause, one volunteer, a free t-shirt or lunch. This day is about coming together as neighbors and friends to do good as a whole, to improve our people and places, wherever there is a need. So whether volunteers on this day were feeding the hungry, picking up litter off our streets, beautifying a public or historic space, brightening someone’s day through crafts and conversation, or simply helping an understaffed non-profit complete tasks that they just didn’t have time to get around to on their own — we all ultimately benefit, as individuals and as a community. Thank you for doing your part!
