Monarch Celebrates National Volunteer Week

3 Natl Vol WeekNational Volunteer Week, held April 12-18, 2015, is about inspiring people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. The week is also about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change.

Through volunteer work, people we support like Melissa Parris, who helps out at the Pet Barn in Asheboro each week and is featured in the above video, are actively making a difference in their communities. Others, like Justin Inscore, a participant of Monarch’s Stanly Industrial Services, dedicates several hours each week cleaning the Community Inn, a homeless shelter in Albemarle. These are just two examples of the hundreds of people with disabilities supported by Monarch who volunteered more than 32,865 hours last year.

“Community involvement helps uncover the talents of the people we support, revealing them to others, while helping to make meaningful connections in the lives of the people they assist,” explained Eileen Bress, Monarch’s volunteer and community coordinator. “We’re also so thankful for our external volunteers who are a vital resource and promote relationships and friendships with the people we support; and that benefits us all.”
