2015 Volunteer Thank You and 2016 Opportunities

On this #ThankfulThursday, I just wanted to express one more time how grateful I am for all of the work volunteers have done for us here at the American Heart Association in 2015. From volunteers who’ve been with us a long time, to ones we’ve met the first time – whether you found us online, were introduced through a friend, or have a personal story that caused you to seek us out, THANK YOU! Our important work couldn’t be done without you, and we so appreciate all your hard work and dedication.
I just wanted to share a few quick things since I’ve had questions about next year’s events and projects – if you’re interested in anything, please let me know!

Current project

·         Little Hats, Big Hearts – in its 3rd year nation-wide, and the first year here in Las Vegas, we are collecting hand-knitted infant hats made from red yarn to be distributed at a local hospital during February – Heart Month. Please see the website or flyer below for full details if you’re interested in participating! Thanks to volunteer Barbara McDonnaugh for helping us get this going! If anyone wants to organize a group to learn/teach/hang-out crocheting or knitting, let me know - we could definitely hold a pot-luck holiday yarn party here at the office some December evening!
