Happy Anniversary Dove!

Next Friday, Dove staff and volunteers will begin sharing our "45 things we want you to know about Dove!" in honor of Dove's 45th Anniversary.  45 years has brought many, many changes to Dove, locations, number of staff, programs, budget etc.  But one "thing" I want you to know to start with is volunteers, people putting their time and talents toward making a difference in the community, was why Dove was started and is a major part of Dove today.

We're Wild About our Volunteers

Staff and Volunteers took a quick break and gathered for a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.  Dove staff had the opportunity to thank our many volunteers, in a small way, with dinner and a cake.

The volunteers came from many counties (DeWitt, Macon, Moultrie and Shelby) but hopefully went back home as intentional friends as everyone shared their volunteer experiences.  The food was good but the conversation was great!

Thanks to all the volunteers who put their time and talents into the program, whether assisting with the Children's program, legal advocacy, support groups, awareness/educational programs, the many support efforts needed and more!
