There are four general ways to help:
I. HELP TO SHARE THE IDEA OF VOLUNTEERS’ DAY – “A DAY OF GRATITUDE”
- Place a lawn sign on your property during the month before Volunteers’ Day. Signs are available for free, just ask us.
- Tell your friends and neighbors about Volunteers Day; ask them if they would like to display a lawn sign.
- Share the idea with your friends in other towns. Woodstock is the only town in America that has a Volunteers’ Day – A Day of Gratitude like this which honors all current and retired volunteers in the community, but all the other volunteers in the Hudson Valley and beyond should be able to enjoy a similar experience. Encourage other towns and communities to have a Volunteers’ Day – A Day of Gratitude.
- If you know of someone in government in other towns, counties school districts, ask them to consider acknowledging the volunteers in their regions on Volunteers Day.
