Summer is just around the corner, and for many of you it brings thoughts of “no school!”, summer camp, beach days and family outings. For HOTC, summer signifies the end of our current fiscal year, and a time for budgeting and planning volunteer days, programs and events for the busy fall season to come.
As you make your summer plans, we ask you to consider making a Summer Gift donation to HOTC, in honor of our community’s youth, a part of those plans. Your donation will help us provide more youth volunteer services and programs in 2013-14 through Student Hands On Thomas County (SHOTC). To learn more about SHOTC, click here.
We have seen a significant increase in demand for youth volunteer opportunities. This year, more than half of our volunteers were under the age of 16. We are thrilled to see more youth volunteering to better the community! Youth who volunteer just one hour per week:
- are less likely to engage in destructive behavior;
- learn respect, confidence, compassion, and leadership skills
- and establish a commitment and responsibility for the community they live in, and the people who live in it.
Help us put these future leaders and caretakers to good use in the community now through age-appropriate, meaningful and productive service opportunities. Make a Summer Gift donation of any amount online here. Or you may mail a donation to:
PO Box 252
Thomasville, GA 31799
Thank you for making a wise investment in the future of our community!
