We have been blessed with volunteers since 1944.Â It started out with just a few, and now has blossomed into more than 600 caring individuals who help make Cancer Services what it is today.Â People often ask how we get so many volunteers.Â So we want to share our secret recipeâ€¦
1 cup of generosity
Â½ cup of time
1 tablespoon of dedication
1 teaspoon of love
A pinch of joy
A dash of kindness
A sprinkle of loyalty
Combine with love, mix with willingness, and blend with individual talents.
That is our secret recipeâ€¦inspired by wonderful volunteers who demonstrate each day what it takes to be a volunteer.
