Volunteers’ huge contribution
National Volunteer Week is April 6-12, and Planned Parenthood of Northern New England would like to thank its 116 volunteers and 22 board members from across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Their service in 2013 totaled 7,961 hours and aided our staff in providing sexual health services and education to more than 42,000 patients. It is an honor to work alongside these members of our northern New England community who actively and publicly commit their time to ensure all people can make voluntary choices about their health.
The positive effect our volunteers have had can be seen throughout our various organizational departments and from within 12 of our 21 health centers. From filing charts, to speaking to the community about the Affordable Care Act, to warmly greeting patients, to approaching state representatives about reproductive health issues, to writing thank-you notes to our donors, to planning community outreach events, to assisting with daily operations in our administrative offices — each and every volunteer helps make it possible to provide outstanding customer service, push forward our advocacy efforts and achieve excellence in all that we do.
On behalf of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, I thank each and every one of our volunteers for their active support in making this mission a reality.
(CEO, Planned Parenthood
