We (SPUD, CBL, and GCR) thank you tremendously for welcoming Holy Cross volunteers into your organizations this semester and year. We are very aware of how difficult managing virtual volunteers can be and we are grateful for the time you spent working with Holy Cross students. From what we have heard from our students, it is clear that they had meaningful experiences, built important relationships, and appreciated how virtual volunteering kept them connected to our city. These experiences, relationships, and feeling of connection wouldn’t have been able to happen without you — your willingness, your creativity, and your hospitality. We are hopeful that you and your community members found the virtual volunteering experience worthwhile and meaningful, as well.
As a small token of our appreciation, this week on social media we will be running a gratitude campaign for our community partners. We asked students to share their words of thanks and have turned those into social media posts for our wider community. Follow our community relations instagram account this week to see all of the posts. We have shared some below, as well.
We look forward to the time that we will be able to properly thank you in person!
