The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County has designated February as “We Love Our Volunteers” month, expressing love and appreciation for the many volunteers who help serve the community.
In addition to several other media strategies, the organization will publish “Love Heart Appreciation Messages” in two-page sections of an upcoming issue of Palm Beach Society Magazine and the Jan. 29 issue of the Town-Crier newspaper.
Due to COVID-19, 2020 was a challenging year for local nonprofit organizations. Thanks to generous supporters, however, the Salvation Army of Palm Beach County was able to appropriately help those most effected by the pandemic in the community. Apart from financial support, the nonprofit’s programs, ministries and services would not have been possible without the organization’s lifeblood — its dedicated volunteers.
“We invite every resident to show their love and appreciation to a Palm Beach County volunteer, and/or volunteer group of their choice during the month of February,” Area Commanders Majors James and Leisa Hall said. “Without volunteers, nonprofit organizations such as the Salvation Army could never maintain a high level of philanthropic service to our community. So, we decided to show them how much we love them!”
Individuals, as well as other nonprofit organizations, who would like to express appreciation to their respective volunteers can purchase a Love Heart Message by calling the Salvation Army administrative office at (561) 686-3530 and/or using the web site’s online purchase system.
