At Threads of Life, volunteers are the heart of our organization. Volunteers touch everything we do. All our programs, services and events are only possible because of the commitment of over 350 volunteers. This International Volunteer Day, we’d like to say thanks to each of them.
When you look for the helpers, often it’s just a few people providing so much comfort.
