Missing our Strongest Supporters
Like many, the Covid pandemic drastically impacted Extend-A-Family. Instead of gathering together in-person, we gathered virtually. Instead of running in-person events like Walk or Wheel, events were switched to a hybrid model where we joined together virtually. This meant that some of our strongest supporters weren’t able to support us in-person: our volunteers!
We missed you!
But things are changing and our volunteers have been returning. Volunteers continued to support the KW Library of Things to continue to operate, loaning items out to members, helping support employment in our community and helping people who only needed an item for a short time, save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
Thank you to the Library of Things volunteers!
Even with volunteers playing a lesser role, volunteers continued to show up for EAFWR and the people we support. These include our 12 Board of Directors and 10 Committee of the Board members. These passionate groups helped guide our organization and continued to work quietly in the background while meeting virtually.
Thank you to our Board members and Committee of the Board members for their ongoing support!
Last year we saw 86 volunteers supporting EAFWR and the people we support, through volunteering on the Board of Directors, on the Committees of the Board, at KW Library of Things, with FamilyHome and providing Respite care to people we support.
Thank you for building an inclusive community where everyone is welcome.
