AIO Thanks Community

By Connie Putnam | Nov 13, 2012

The Area Interfaith Outreach Board of Directors (AIO) would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all who made our recent Annual Meeting and Volunteer Appreciation event a success.

 To our volunteers (and we are all volunteers at AIO): you are the first line of defense against hunger and hopelessness to people in need in our communities. You are the face of AIO and you represent us well and faithfully under sometimes stressful conditions. No thanks can be enough to repay what we owe to the many volunteers who help at the food pantry and at events throughout the year.

To the folks at Nativity Lutheran Church: thanks for all the hard work you did in providing a space for the event, setting up the tables and cleaning up after dinner. No doubt you did many other things that we are not even aware of, to help get ready for this event.

To our speaker, former State Attorney General Steven Rowe:  our gratitude for an insightful and heartwarming speech commending our volunteers. You clearly understand what is at stake and what it takes to meet the ever increasing needs set before us.

We are also thankful for the publicity extended by this publication to make the community aware of this event and its importance.

Area Interfaith Outreach is a wonderful example of what can be accomplished through working together. The board thanks the volunteers, but that board spends countless hours drawing things together so there will even be a need for volunteers. Many have been there from the formation years ago. May God richly bless them; each and every one. :) Talk about a "CAN DO" attitude!!
