Sample Notes to Thank Soup Kitchen Volunteers
No other group of people deserves our gratitude more than volunteers. They lend their time, effort and resources to the less fortunate without expecting anything in return.
Though it’s not a paying job, it’s far from thankless. In fact, volunteers get something that no money can buy – fulfillment. The satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped change lives is worth more than any material things. (Related: Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen)
