The holiday season is a time to give thanks for all that we are grateful for in our
community, and to contemplate ways we can improve our community, its people, and our quality of life. At Hands On Thomas County, we are thankful for you – our volunteers, sponsors, donors, and community partners – for all you do to make a positive difference.
This past October saw another amazing HOTC Day – our biggest ever – with 1551 volunteers, at 71 projects sites benefiting 38 local agencies – all devoted to the betterment of our community, and all taking place in just one morning of service. The overwhelming participation by people like you on HOTC Day, and throughout the year, is a true testament of what makes our community such a special place to be a part of. Over the past 14 years of service to our community, through annual volunteer events and on-going daily opportunities, HOTC has directly placed more than 26,000 who have donated nearly 215,000 hours of their time, energy and resources to community needs. That is a lot of good work for many a good cause!
Help us make every day an HOTC Day by making a tax-deductible, end-of-year gift to HOTC. If everyone who reads this gives just $10 or more in support of our volunteer services and programs, we can do even more, such as:
- Fund additional volunteer Manna Drops to feed the hungry in our own backyard. $500 purchases food staples to feed 150 families.
- Expand Student Hands On Thomas County offerings to meet growing demand for programs that educate and impart a sense of civic duty among youth, our future caretakers and leaders.
- Provide volunteer coordination and support to more partner non-profits to further their missions, improve their facilities, and benefit their clients.
- Provide tools, supplies, and resources that are used by our volunteers to get things done for our non-profit partners. $10 purchases one rake or shovel.
Whether you give $10 or $10,000, know that by making an end-of-year gift to HOTC, you will make a difference to not just one cause, group or individual, but many, all right here in Thomas County. On behalf of everyone at Hands On Thomas County, thank you for your support and generosity.
