We always say how San Diego’s incredible volunteers spend “countless hours” making a huge impact in the local community. From campus beautification projects and after-school programs to helping out in classrooms and volunteering for fundraisers, volunteers in San Diego are a tremendous, yet often invisible, workforce when it comes to being positive influences and role models for young children everywhere.
In honor of National Volunteer Week and National Volunteer Month, we did a little math to calculate just how many hours our standout San Diego School Volunteer of the Year nominees collectively spend volunteering their time each year to their neighborhood schools, and the results are quite astounding!
300 volunteers. 19,500 hours per month. 230,000 hours per year. $2 million worth of unpaid hours per year! That’s how much our San Diego School Volunteer of the Year Award nominees are worth (and much more)! If that’s not enough evidence to thank your school volunteers today, we just don’t know what is!
These incredible, tireless volunteers deserve a tremendous amount of recognition for the many hours they spend making schools in San Diego a better place for children to learn, play and thrive for years to come. Thank your school volunteers for their selfless dedication and hard work, and cast your vote for this year’s top school volunteer honor at donornation.org/award/vote to show just how much your school volunteers mean to you!
