This time of year, we often hear the phrase: “the gift of giving.” I believe that giving truly is a gift. I have been so fortunate to work with generous people and amazing organizations over the past year. Along the way, I have also made some special friendships!
In one of my volunteer capacities, I serve as an Earth Team Volunteer (ETV) with the Natural Resources Conservation Service. The primary purpose of the Earth Team volunteer program is to expand NRCS services by using volunteer time, talent, and energy to help accomplish the NRCS mission.
Usually, I fulfill my ETV responsibilities through my work with People’s Gardens. Yesterday I was given the opprotunity to help out in a much different way!
Toys were collected by NRCS and local Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) personnel in support of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. I got to play the role of “elf” and help make the delivery.
Thanks to NRCS, SWCD, and the Salvation Army for your efforts throughout the year!
