This time of year, many of us are preparing to gather with friends and family to give thanks for the things in our life that deserve our gratitude. Here at ESLT, we wanted to take a moment to do that as well, and so last week we held a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.

The evening was filled with good cheer, many thanks, and celebration of the time our volunteers have given. ESLT would not be able to do the work we do without our volunteers.

We took a moment to thank Hillary, our AmeriCorps member volunteer, for giving over 1700 hours in the past year. Stay tuned in our blog and coming Winter Newsletter to hear from Hillary on how her year of service went.

And most of all, we thanked our volunteers for giving more than 2,000 hours of their time, skills, and passion.

Are you interested in volunteering and would like to find out more? Contact us, and join us at our Volunteer Orientation, held annually in February.
