Hey Camp Korey …. How You Feeling?!
We FEEL SO GOOD because The Week of Giving is right around the corner!
It just feels good to give! In a year that it is so important now more than ever to take care of yourself, we are seeing a surge in people coming together to take care of others as frontline workers, volunteers, neighbors, or philanthropic supporters. The world is coming together, and it is because of this unity that our greater global community can thrive and overcome.
In celebration of our unity, Camp Korey is excited to participate in International Volunteer Day with a “Week of Giving” starting November 30- December 5.
FUN FACT: Did you know that December 5 is International Volunteer Day? IVD is an international observance mandated by the UN General Assembly in 1985. The day offers an opportunity for volunteer-involving organizations and individual volunteers to promote volunteerism, encourage and support volunteer efforts and recognize volunteer contributions.
Now, that is cool!
The reality is 2020 added new obstacles with COVID-19 that had a worldwide impact on all peoples. So, it is fitting that this year’s theme is “Together We Can.” Over the course of the year, as the COVID 19 pandemic has ravaged across the world, volunteers have been at the forefront of medical, community and societal responses. Together, lets make #IVD2020 at Camp Korey a movement to thank volunteers and celebrate their efforts and the mountains we have moved.
Sign up on Volunteer Match and participate in one of our three 2020 International Volunteer Day activities!
