2015 Outstanding Regional Network

Recaps of our Volunteering Events

    A small, highly productive group came together at Goodwill Industries in September, dedicating time and effort to support an organization that has given so much to the GOOD Network.  Working on the new BookWorks program, we cleaned, labeled, and sorted one-thousand books! Our efforts will yield 20 classes to have books read to them, and then every student will be given a book of their own to take home.  For many of these students, this will be the only book they have.

    We had fun remembering favorite books we read as young children, and as parents and grandparents.  While we were all business acquaintances, nobody really knew each other well; so it felt good to hear and share our personal stories, making the time fly by.  We were so engaged, that when it was time to stop, some asked to stay a little longer to finish the job!  

    It felt good to do good.  I hope you can enjoy just such an experience the next time we coordinate a group volunteer event!
