Doing good may be its own reward, but most volunteers across the Carolinas would probably agree that it’s nice to be recognized for the time, effort and commitment they’ve put into serving others—particularly in what can sometimes seem to be thankless roles.
Members of our communities devote their energy and enthusiasm to making communities in the Carolinas the very best they can be. Most of the time they do this by serving in important board positions and committees, and on neighborhood projects. Volunteers also help keep assessments down—every hour of volunteer work is an hour of labor that the Southern Community Service Home Owners Association does not have to pay a service provider.
Below are some easy ways to show your neighbors how much you appreciate their hard work.
- Keep an eye out for those featured in our newsletter’s Volunteer Spotlight. When you see them, introduce yourself and say “Thanks!”
- Join us for our annual volunteer appreciation celebration. Help us honor those who have donated their time throughout the year, and have some fun.
- Send an e-mail to a volunteer explaining that he or she is valued for stepping up.
As volunteers, your neighbors invest their time in projects that benefit you and the Carolinas. No association can thrive without them; so let them know you appreciate their efforts.
