Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to celebrate the impact of volunteers. This week we celebrate the power of volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges and build stronger communities across the nation. This week we express gratitude to volunteers for lending their time, talents, and voices to make a difference in their communities.
In 1972, when the Davis Free Clinic began offering healthcare services to patients, it was because Dr. John H. Jones leveraged the skills and talents of an all-volunteer staff. Welcoming the contributions of volunteer healthcare providers, student interns, and community volunteers – at all levels of the organization – continues to be a core value of CommuniCare today.
Currently there are more than 120 volunteers and students who bring their unique experiences and skill-sets to CommuniCare, supporting our agency’s ability to serve the most vulnerable of our friends and neighbors. Our volunteers and students bring with them passion, strong capability, fresh perspective, and an eagerness to contribute to a healthier community.
Thank you to all CommuniCare Volunteers, past and present! We are grateful for your service.
