Many Thanks to our Volunteers!
Posted on 07/22/2015
Over the past fiscal year, we had 72 volunteers and interns provide 4,714 hours of service to Insight! That's the equivalent of over 2 full time staff positions or a donation of $115,445!
We have been fortunate to work for many summers with the Fairfax Unitarian Universalist Summer Experience (FUUSE) internship program. We have had great students provide invaluable assistance in the day center, completing up to 120 hour internships! A past intern shared:
"I have really enjoyed my time at IMCC, especially working directly with people in the Sunshine Room. Three friends I made were Jacob, Paul and Doug*. Jacob used to be a carpenter and would tell me stories of how he built houses and other creations. Paul used to work at the U.N. and told me stories of his visits all over the world. Doug used to bike a lot and fix bikes."
*names have been changed.
Many thanks to the FUUSE program for their continued support of our center, and to all of our volunteers who make friends with our participants and truly make a difference!
